About

Ben Martin was TIME Magazine’s first New York Bureau staff photographer covering wars, fashion, politics, arts, business, and sports for TIME, Life, Fortune, People, and Sports Illustrated for thirty-three years. He immortalized evocative images that defined the 1960’s.

In this series of legendary photoshoots, Martin captured the complexity of each artist's personality, art, and surroundings. This black & white photograph was taken in 1963 and is a rare capture of Marisol Escobar (1930 – 2016) in her studio.

Marisol Escobar, otherwise known simply as Marisol, was a Venezuelan-American sculptor born in Paris, who lived and worked in New York City. She went on to study at the École des Beaux-Arts, and the Académie Julian. She returned to the US to live in New York City, where in the early 1950s she developed her signature sculptural works. She became world-famous in the mid-1960s but lapsed into relative obscurity within a decade. She continued to create her artworks and returned to the limelight in the early 21st century, capped by a 2014 major retrospective show organized by the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art.

The size of the photograph is 19.25 inches high by 11.5 inches wide. This black & white photograph was taken in 1960. It is numbered 1 of 50 on the back of the photograph. It is framed in a black wooden frame measuring 25.5 inches high and 18.5 inches wide. The size and price include the frame. It is wired and ready to hang. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable Continental U.S. and worldwide shipping. A certificate of authenticity issued by Kathryn Leigh Scott representing Ben Martin's Photographs is included.

Ben Martin attended Ohio University, where he majored in journalism and photography, working his way through college cooking nights as a short-order “White Castle” hamburger chef, and as a stringer-photographer for UPI Newspictures. He was married to actress Kathryn Leigh Scott (1971-1990), with whom he co-founded Pomegranate Press, a book publishing company. The two remained close friends and business partners until his death on February 10, 2017, at age 86.

Ben Martin's photographs have been exhibited in galleries throughout the US.

Artplex Gallery is pleased to offer Ben Martin's photograph through official Kathryn Leigh Scott authorized editions. This edition size is only authorized for 50. Please contact us for additional photographs from Ben Martin.
