Initials L.G. features portraits
and rare images of the iconic French singer and artist Serge
Gainsbourg from photographers Helmut Newton, William Klein,
Patrick de Spiegelaere, Tony Frank, and other noted artists.
The exhibit coincides with the twentieth anniversary of
Gainsbourg’s untimely death in March 1991. A tribute to the
artist’s subversive flair and vivid imagination, Initials
L.G. was first shown to great success on the tenth anniversary
of the Fifty One Fine Art Photography gallery in Belgium
and at Sotheby’s Paris in February of 2011, before making
its U.S. debut at FIAF. Most of the prints on display will
be for sale.
The exhibition at Sotheby's in Paris received rave reviews
from numerous publications. Check out this
