About the Item

American actress Raquel Welch on a table in her knickers in ‘Myra Breckinridge’, a 1970 American comedy film based on Gore Vidal’s novel and directed by Michael Sarne, with Raquel Welch in the title role. Raquel Welch is an American actress and singer. She first won attention for her role in Fantastic Voyage (1966), after which she won a contract with 20th Century Fox. They lent her contract to a British studio, for whom she made One Million Years B.C.(1966). As a teenager and worked as a model, waitress and television weather girl before making her film debut in 1964, playing a call girl in the film A House Is Not a Home. More films would follow, but it was One Million Years B.C. (1966), in which she was dressed in a scantily clad deer-skin bikini that raised her status as one of the top sex symbols of her time. In the 1970s Playboy dubbed her the "Most Desired Woman" of the decade. Despite appearing in a variety of films starting opposite big names like Frank Sinatra and Burt Reynolds, Welch wanted to be taken seriously as an actress. In 1970 she took a chance and played a transsexual heroine in the controversial film, Myra Breckinridge. The film ended up being a flop, but Welch continued working both in television and in movies. In 1974 she won a Golden Globe for Best Actress for her role in The Three Musketeers. In 1982 she turned to the stage in the Broadway musical Woman of the Year (1982).

  • Woman Protestor, March on Washington, African-American Civil Rights Photography
    By Leonard Freed
    Located in New york, NY
    Woman Protestor, March on Washington, 1963 by Leonard Freed, is a 14" x 11" gelatin silver photograph, signed and stamped on verso (back of photo) by the estate, Brigitte Freed (wife of the photographer). The photo is in Leonard Freed's book “This Is the Day: The March on Washington'' (p. 50). Leonard Freed enjoyed documentary storytelling and as a "concerned photographer" his work demonstrated humanitarian concerns. The photographer travelled to New York, Washington, D.C., and throughout the South, capturing the daily life of African-Americans. Documenting the 1960s Civil Rights Movement from the East Coast to the Deep South, Freed’s photo essay culminated in the book Black in White America, which contributed to Freed's becoming one of the well-known documentary photographers of 20th Century America. After Freed’s death in 2006 his widow, Brigitte Freed was inspired to compile a book on the March on Washington from her late husband’s archive when she heard then-Senator former President Barack Obama remark to an audience of civil rights activists, “I stand here because you walked.” The March on Washington series is a powerful visual testimony, capturing protests that culminated in Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream'' speech, delivered at the base of the Lincoln Memorial. Provenance: Freed archive. *** Artist’s Bio: Leonard Freed (1929-2006) was an American photographer from Brooklyn, New York.
