About the Item

This silver gelatin photograph was printed in New York City in the 1990s from the original negative. George Platt Lynes (1907 to 1955) was a legendary fashion photographer who shot celebrities and fashion for Vogue magazine. His work is highly sought after and rare as he burned most of his photos and negatives before his death. Collected by museums and fine art photography collectors worldwide including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. This high fashion image was originally published in Vogue Magazine, 1944. Image: 8” x 10” newly framed and matted and thick modern black frame: 11” x 14”. George Platt Lynes was an American fashion and commercial photographer who worked in the 1930s and 1940s. He produced photographs featuring many gay artists and writers from the 1940s that were acquired by the Kinsey Institute after his death in 1955. He was soon receiving commissions from Harper's Bazaar, Town & Country, and Vogue[1] including a cover with perhaps the first supermodel, Lisa Fonssagrives. In 1935, he was asked to document the principal dancers and productions of Kirstein's and George Balanchine's newly founded American Ballet company (now the New York City Ballet).
