An exhibit by internationally acclaimed photographer George Daniell will kick off the Art Basel Week at Naomi Wilzig's World Erotic Art Museum.

The exhibit "At the Beach...From the Hudson River to the World," will open with a reception on Monday, Dec. 2 at the world famous erotic art museum. The hours are 9 a.m. to midnight.

Daniell, who died in 2002, was a contemporary of Georgia O'Keefe and John Marin. He began his 60-year career with a deep fascination for water and figures on the beach. Prominent in his extensive portfolio was an equal fascination with celebrity. Photographing artists, writers, people in the theater and in movies was a specialty. His celebrated portraits of Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren, Ingrid Bergman, and several other international personalities, will be included in the exhibit.

The exhibit is curated by Helmut Schuster, and presented in cooperation with the George Daniell Archive.

Admission is $15 and includes the reception. It also includes the opportunity to view the 20-room erotic art museum, which houses the largest private collection of publicly displayed erotic art in the world.
