[Original Silver Print Portrait Photograph of Hume Derr]
by Muray, Nickolas [photographer]
New York: Nickolas Muray, 1925. Original 10 x 8" double weight glossy black & white silver print portrait. Photographer's credit stamp and pencil identifying text on verso. Very near fine. An original portrait photograph by the renowned photographer and fencing champion of Hume Derr in the minor role of "Other Folk," in what was considered the New York premiere of O'Neill's DESIRE UNDER THE ELMS at the Earl Carroll Theatre. There had been a brief preview of the play at the Greenwich Village Theatre prior to the official premiere. This portrait dates from the decade of Muray's great commercial breakthrough, with commissions for portraits from VANITY FAIR, VOGUE and HARPER'S BAZAAR. Muray's portaits of his lover, Frida Kahlo, taken during their ten year affair, are among the iconic portraits of the artist. Muray later developed many of the accepted conventions of commercial photography, and is regarded as a master of the three-color carbro process. (Inventory #: WRCLIT73416)
