The photograph titled “Woman with Roses (Lisa Fonssagrives-Penn)” was captured by artist Irving Penn in Paris, 1950. It depicts a woman in an elegant, form-fitting black dress, posed in profile against a textured background. She gazes over her shoulder with a slight smile, her posture poised and graceful.
