Just a few months after the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum opened its doors, Tony Vaccaro took this playful image of Isabella Albonico modeling a hat nearly identical to the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed building. This October, the museum celebrates 60 years as an icon of art and architecture, with its historic façade an instantly recognizable feature of the Fifth Avenue landscape.
