This photograph by Edward Steichen appeared in the September 1932 issue of "Vanity Fair." This archival giclée reproduction is matted and set in a black Italian wood frame.
Steichen was among the world's best-known and highest-paid photographers in the 1920s and ’30s. From 1923 to 1938, he worked as a photographer for "Vogue," "Vanity Fair," and many high-profile advertising agencies. He collaborated frequently with Alfred Stieglitz, publisher of the groundbreaking magazine "Camera Work," and his photographs appeared frequently within its pages. Steichen's 1911 photographs of gowns for the magazine "Art et Décoration" are regarded as the first modern fashion photographs ever published.
