Ava Gardner portraits by George Hoyningen-Huene.

Baron George Hoyningen-Huene (1900-1968) was a seminal fashion photographer of the 1920s and 30s. He was born in Russia to Baltic German and American parents and spent his working life in France, England and the United States. Here are some of the most impressive shots he took of Ava Gardner in 1956 for MGM. For an even bigger dose of Miss Gardner, like us on Facebook for more shots, here.

NB- don’t miss out on our Norman Parkinson’s gothic portrait of Vivien Leigh here

I am not the author of these images. All rights go to MGM.

  1. Very amazing website. I am a fan of Cinema, especially of the avantgarde and the american noir films of 1940/1950. I adore Billy Wilder, Orson Welles, john Ford, Howard Hawks, William Wyler, Max Ophuls and many, many others. Thank you again!!!
