About the artist
Renowned for her photographs of Marilyn Monroe, Eve Arnold (1912-2012) is one of the world’s most celebrated female photographers. Born in Philadelphia to Russian immigrant parents, she studied photography with Alexei Brodovitch at the New School for Social Research in New York.
Arnold first became associated with Magnum Photos in 1951, and became a full member in 1957. She was based in the US during the 1950s but went to England in 1962 and, except for a six-year interval when she worked in the US and China, she lived in the UK for the rest of her life.
Her time in China led to her first major solo exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum in 1980. In 1995 she was made fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and elected Master Photographer by New York's International Center of Photography. In 1996 she received the Kraszna-Krausz Book Award for ‘In Retrospect’ and in 2003 was granted an Order of the British Empire.
She has had twelve books published, including most recently ‘Eve's Arnold's People’, Thames & Hudson, UK (2009) and ‘Marilyn Monroe by Eve Arnold’, Washington Green/Halcyon, UK; Harry A. Abrams, USA (2005).
