Simone de Beauvoir nue par Art Shay
In Chicago, 1950, Simone de Beauvoir had a torrid affair with the American writer Nelson Algren, with whom she experienced a kind of sexual awakening, Art Shay, a photographer for LIFE and Time followed Algren an interesting character. On a very hot day in Chicago, Simone, dripping with sweat, stopped by Art’s place to take a shower. As she was freshening up, Art took a few magnificent photographs.
We will return to Art’s work in January for a retrospective of his work to be held in Los Angeles.
