MFA Boston: Exhibition: Karsh 100: A Biography in Images

In celebration of the 100th birthday of renowned photographer Yousuf Karsh (1908–2002), the MFA will host an exhibition of the great portraitist’s work, offering a visual biography of this twentieth-century legend. Born in Armenia, settling first in Canada and eventually in the United States, Karsh made a career photographing the world’s most distinguished statesmen, artists, literary figures, musicians, scientists, actors, and actresses. Traveling the globe, he gained access to virtually every great figure of his time. Among his most famous iconic images are ones he made of Winston Churchill (1941), Albert Einstein (1948), Pablo Picasso (1954), Georgia O’Keeffe (1956), Ernest Hemingway (1957), Jacqueline and John F. Kennedy (1960), Sophia Loren (1981), and Jessye Norman (1990).
