George Hurrell Star Portraits:
from Esquire Magazine, WWII era
Set of Eight Star Photos
Authentic Vintage...not copies!
Priced WELL BELOW market
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 eight pages; printed on both sides of four 10" x 14" pages. This is a wartime collection showing unity among nations with the starlets- all of Columbia Pictures- representing different Axis countries:
China: Adele Mara
Czechoclovakia: Alma Carroll
Poland: Lilly Norwood
England: Marquerite Chapman
Norway: Evelyn Keyes
Holland: Shirley Patterson
Russia: Leslie Brooks
USA: Jinx Falkenburg (wealthy socialite & actress)
These all have a sepia tone...not plain black and white.
If you wish to frame them a good laser copy would do it for you, to make a pair from the back-to-back photos. Condition FINE. They have a bit of toning at the edges. I have just this one set to sell like this. A GREAT collection!
