DescriptionJoan Crawford by George Hurrell (MGM, 1930s). Portrait Photo & Autographed Portrait Photo (8" X 10").
The mutually-respectful relationship of the two artists Joan Crawford and photographer George Hurrell resulted in some of the most magnificent images to emerge from the Golden Age of Hollywood. Here is one of those images, a wonderful profile shot of Crawford at her best, looking every bit the star that she was. On the bottom right corner is the embossed stamp of Hurrell, and on the verso, in purple ink, is his studio stamp. There is a black MGM studio stamp as well. The second Crawford portrait photo in this lot also dates from the 1930s and has been signed by the star. The inscription reads "To Annette Thank you Joan Crawford." The only condition issues are some extremely mild surface scuff and a slight edge wear in the right edge on the Hurrell photo. The Hurrell photo is double weight on glossy paper. The autographed photo is single weight and satin finish. Very Fine+.
Estimate: $400 - $800.
