JOAN CRAWFORD / BY RUTH HARRIET LOUISE (1926)

$3,850.00


Vintage original 10 x 13" (25 x 33 cm.) black-and-white double weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. One of the earliest and most elegant of all Joan Crawford portraits ever photographed -- and Joan loved working in the portrait photographers' studio! She, along with Greta Garbo, adored working with the great portrait artist Ruth Harriet Louise, and Louise took some of the most unusual images of Crawford. Louise worked at MGM between 1925 and 1930.

Here Crawford is wearing a spectacular beaded and sequined fur wrap and beaded gown. Though not credited, it is likely that this was designed by Erte, who worked at MGM in 1925 and 1926 and designed the costumes for Crawford's first featured role in SALLY, IRENE AND MARY and her 1926 film PARIS, for which this is likely a portrait.

This still features the Ruth Harriet Louise blind stamp at the lower right corner, her MGM ink stamp on the verso as well as the Joan Crawford Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer ink stamp. The epitome of early Art Deco glamour. FINE.
