About the Item

The artist photographed revolutionary leader Fidel Castro entrance into Havana, Cuba, celebrity and art luminaries such as Andy Warhol and Helen Frankenthaler. Subject matter included the social scene of the rich, the dirtiness of politics, and the humorous.

    By Jack Robinson
    Located in Memphis, TN
    Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci, born in Parma and the son of poets, was himself a published poet at the age of eighteen.
