Diane Arbus (1923?1971) was one of the most original and influential American artists of the 20th century. This retrospective exhibition, the first in more than 30 years, presents the artist's signature images?such as Child with a toy hand grenade in Central Park, N.Y.C., 1962 and A Jewish giant at home with his parents in the Bronx, N.Y., 1970?as well as previously unpublished photographs and writings drawn from the artist's archive. The show traces the artist's full achievement from her early experiments with the camera in the 1940s to her mature portraiture of the 1960s.
