From 5 March to 9 June 2013, the Gemeentemuseum in Helmond, Netherlands, will be showing a retrospective by Magnum photographer Eve Arnold (1912-2012). The exhibition encompasses 150 photographs from a wide variety of creative eras in the artist's career.
For one of her earliest reportages, Arnold documented a catwalk show of black models in a racist 1950s America. It captured the attention of Henri Cartier-Bresson, who invited Arnold to become the first female member of the Magnum Agency. The retrospective also includes photographs of Marlene Dietrich and Joan Crawford, as well as long-term projects from Afghanistan and China. One of the exhibition's highlights are Arnold's portraits of Marilyn Monroe, who she repeatedly photographed over the course of ten years: sensitive images in which the trust between photographer and model is palpable.
