Chairman Nikita Khrushchev 1963. Yousuf Karsh collection at Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
Quote attributed to Karsh: “If it’s a likeness, alone, it’s not a success. If, through my portraits, you can come to know the subjects more meaningfully, if it synthesizes your feelings toward someone whose work has imprinted itself on your mind - if you see a photograph and say, ‘Yes, this is the person,’ with a little new insight - that is a beautiful experience.”
