Lips, 1960 by Ormond Gigli is a c-print. It is titled and dated in ink lower left margin recto (front of photo), signed lower right margin recto by the photographer. A contemporary color photograph, a close up of beautiful red lips, by a master of 20th Century photography, the work remains an iconic 20th Century fashion photograph, in an edition of 30. The print provenance is the artist's studio/archive and is available: 24" x 36"

Lips is another of Gigli’s iconic and popular works, created for TIME magazine, in 1960. It’s pop-inspired close-up of a woman’s brightly painted lips. Exuding femininity and sensuality, the work restates one of the oldest themes of art history, reimagining the female form in a new and contemporary way. “Lips” has become such a famous image that many fashion photographers have revisited and been inspired by it for more than half a century.
