Marlene Dietricht, New York, 1948 National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution. Gift of Irving Penn © Conde Nast Publications Inc

"Sensitive people faced with the prospect of a camera portrait put on a face they think is one they would like to show the world......... very often what lies behind the facade is rare and more wonderful than the subject knows or dares to believe."
Irving Penn, 1975
