Lot Details

Lot 55
DE MEYER, BARON ADOLPH (1868-1949) [Baroness Olga de Meyer in a dark hat], about 1915
. Vintage platinum print on original (?) black paper mount, 8 1/8 x 3 1/2 inches (206 x 88 mm), unsigned and unannotated. Minor toning to the edge of the print
A very fine Pictorialist depiction of Olga de Meyer. When she died in about 1931, he destroyed many of his prints while in a fit of deep depression, so vintage de Meyer images are relatively difficult to obtain. De Meyer himself had to borrow his own vintage prints from clients for exhibition in later years. This image is illustrated in Alexandra Anderson-Spivy Of Passions and Tenderness: Portraits of Olga by Baron De Meyer
, 1993.
