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 article in the Wall Street Journal.
