Why We Love This

Published in Vanity Fair in November 1935, this photograph shows Louis Armstrong, the Merlin of the Jazz Age and the musician most responsible for placing a nation under the spell of its first, purely native art form. If the spirit of the energetic, gravel-voiced Armstrong ever coalesced into one iconic image from the period, it was this lingering blast of light and shade by Australian photographer Anton Bruehl. A stylist who had honed his craft on advertising shoots, Bruehl knew just how to play the three-note chord of the Armstrong theme: the terse geometry of the horn, the ever-present cool-down cloth, and jazz's magic lips and smile, bright -- and slightly divine.

This beautiful silver gelatin print comes with an option of a black or white frame.

This print is part of a limited-edition selection by Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter and his team, of a photograph taken from the magazine’s archives. Revamped by Condé Nast in 1914, Vanity Fair has published the writings and photographs of some of the great American luminaries, including Edward Steichen and Cecil Beaton. Each print in this edition is stamped and numbered.
