Julius Schulman Signed Black & White Photograph, Von Sternberg House

$2,500

About

Julius Shulman signed black and white gelatin photo of the Von Sternberg house in Northridge, CA, circa 1947. #1675 The overall piece measures 16" x 20" and the actual image is 12" x 16". The photograph is signed by Shulman on the reverse side. The Von Sternberg House was a mini-mansion designed by the architect Richard Neutra. With only one bedroom, plus bedrooms for servants, it was built in 1935 at 10000 Tampa Avenue, Northridge, on a plot of 13 acres in California's then-rural San Fernando Valley for the movie director Josef von Sternberg. The exterior of the house was all steel and glass, and the appearance of the house and of its landscaped surroundings was made of sinuous lines, yet the interiors were orthogonal, making furniture placement simple and easy. As in many others of his domestic designs, Neutra made heavy use of industrial windows and sidings, fulfilling both aesthetic and practical functions, such as making privacy screens and windbreaks. In the 1940s, novelist-philosopher Ayn Rand bought the house. Although concerned by the property's 20 mile distance from Hollywood, where she worked as a screenwriter, Rand and her husband, actor Frank O'Connor, paid $24,000 for the house. In 1963, according to Rand's biographer Barbara Branden, she and O'Connor sold the house for $175,000.
