The interior-design photographer Horst P. Horst is in the fifth decade of his career. Since the 1950s, after his apprenticeship to the pioneering modernist architect, Le Corbusier, Horst's photos have captured many of the classic interiors of the beau monde. Organized by decades, this book provides an overview of his accomplishments and a record of domestic taste over the last half-century. With text and interviews by Barbara Plumb, the book reflects the look of each different era, recording the flowering and the fading of trends. Among the rooms shown are those of Katharine Graham, Baroness Philippe de Rothschild, Gloria Vanderbilt, Valentino, Cy Twombley and Tatiana Franchetti, and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. The author's other books include "The `New York Times' Guide to Home Furnishings" and "Houses Architects Live In".
