George Hurrell Star Portraits:
from Esquire Magazine, Nov 1941
Ellen Drew, Lillian Cornell, & Gloria Youngblood
Authentic Vintage...not copies!
GREATLY REDUCED PRICE!
George Hurrell was to Hollywood what Raphael Tuck was to Queen Victoria. He was the BEST at making young stars look glamourous, gorgous, sumptuous...and often in black and white. Which I think are some of his most beautiful works.
Mr. Hurrell worked from his San Fernando Balley house shooting nearly every star and starlet from the 30s well into the 60s. He was friends with most everyone who sat for him. And why not? He made everyone look soooo good!
His photos became popular in Esquire Magazine, and later in Playboy Magazine. His shots of Harlow and Rita and Russell,and more are famous and quite recognizably familiar. He shot the iconic Jane Russell in the hay for that film that was not near as good as the photo; The Outlaw.
I am parting with some of my collection. There are two pages; one is printed on both sides of the same 10" x 14" page with Ellen Drew and Lillian Cornell. The second page is Gloria Youngblood. Also with this, mostly for dating, is a partial article on Olivia DeHavilland (no photos). That one is dated November 1941, just before the US entered WWII.
If you wish to frame them a good laser copy would do it for you, to make a pair of the back-to-back photos. Condition VERY FINE. I have just this one set to sell like this.
