George Hurrell Star Portrait:
from Esquire Magazine 1943
JANE RUSSELL in the Hay
Authentic Vintage...Not a Copy!
PRICED WELL BELOW MARKET VALUE!
George Hurrell-Photograher to the Stars- 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. And THIS IS IT! The one that became the posters and billboards for the film, and the one that got the film banned in some cities. Actually it's one of a bunch of shots of the voluptuous star in the hay. This particular presentation in Esquire VERY collectible and desirable for star collectors.
On the back side is a nice full color feature of men's summer hats with a pretty panel of men and women in fashionable vacation clothes and situations. It's signed -in the print- by the artist. I THINK it says Hughes.
I am parting with some of my collection. This is a full color, fold-out page, sized 18" x 14". When folded the size is 9.75" x 14." Condition VERY FINE. I have just this one to sell. Some research shows these prints of Ms. Russell from the original magazine to be going for $200 and UP....up to $500!!!
Foreign Cutsomers PLEASE NOTE: because of the larger size, it will cost more than the usual to send them in flat Priority Packaging. So please be prepared to cover any additional charges. Thanks.
