    Description

    Joan Crawford by George Hurrell (MGM, 1930s). Portrait Photo (10" X 13").
    Vintage gelatin silver, double weight, satin finish photo. You'll find fewer things rarer on Joan Crawford than vintage George Hurrell oversize portraits, particularly in this high a grade and especially with this hair color! Usually photos this size were intended for the national magazines, with different shots carefully doled out to each perspective reviewer according to their past performance for the studio. This one's a real winner, with Hurrell's clever use of the completely darkened background to let Crawford's true beauty shine unhindered by props or stagy furniture. On the verso there are photographer's and studio stamp. There is only a small tear in the top right border and some minor edge wear with small corner bumps. Very Fine.
