Vanity Fair & Arts

Since 1914, Vanity Fair promoted the work of modern artists (Picasso, Brancusi) and illustrators (Miguel Covarrubias, Paolo Garretto), published essays by new literary lights (from Dorothy Parker and Gertrude Stein to D. H. Lawrence and Aldous Huxley), and helped popularize and perfect the genre of celebrity portraiture through the pioneering work of photographers such as Edward Steichen, Man Ray, Cecil Beaton, and Baron de Meyer.
The American Vanity Fair, first introduced by publishing impresario Condé Nast in 1914, suspended operations in 1936. The title was revived in 1983, expanded as an international edition in 1991, and has since become the magazine world's monthly gauge of the modern age.
