Original 35mm slide features Donna Barnes taken by Bob Guccione in 1981. Provenance: The Estate of Bob Guccione, NJ, 2012.Subject:
At a full bodied five feet eleven inches, Donna Barnes is a long, lush 38-24-38-inch stretch of hill country any man would love to travel. And our cowgirl from Austin is the first to admit that "once upon a Texan, no other fily will do!" Now that she's a successful ad exec for sister publication Omni, it's clear that, one way or another, Donna will always be dressed for success!Photographer:
In 1965, Bob Guccione, a struggling artist with an entrepreneurial imagination, started a magazine called Penthouse. Due to his lack of resources, Guccione personally photographed most of the models for the magazine's early issues. He spent long hours, and sometimes, several days, to complete a photo shoot. Although he had no professional training, Guccione applied his knowledge of painting to his photography, establishing the diffused, soft focus look that would become one of the trademarks of the magazine's pictorials. These images offered more sexually explicit content than other gentleman’s magazines of the era, establishing Penthouse as a well known name amongst its competitors.Featured Video:
