George Hurrell, who died in 1992, spent more than 60 years making the glamorous even more so. Using shadows to cut cheekbones and light to suggest practically angelic auras, he captured the brooding sensuality of old Hollywood. But the surprise of Hurrell Hollywood: The Photographs of George Hurrell, 1927-1990 lies not in his portraits of Greta Garbo, Clark Gable, and Marlene Dietrich — personifications of style — but in his photographs of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Daryl Hannah, and Brooke Shields. So elegant and precise is Hurrell’s art that even these icons of pop culture seem mysterious. A+
