BASSMAN, Lillian. Lingerie.
(New York, NY): Abrams, 2012. First edition. Slim quarto. 126 pages. Introduction by Eric Hemmel. Nice volume collecting Bassman’s fashion photography illustrating woman’s underwear and nightclothes. Spanning sixty years the images express a penetrating artistic vision, that rise above their commercial roots to portray a private realm where women appear to be effortlessly self-possessed. A very good copy in dust jacket. .
