Actor and critic Alexander Woollcott called Katharine Cornell 'the first lady of theater,' and she lived up to the moniker with forays into every area of theatrical life: acting, writing, producing, directing, and operating her own playhouse. Among her other accolades, Cornell won a Tony in 1948 for her role as Cleopatra in Antony and Cleopatra. She was managing her production of Brief Moment when she sat for this photograph, by Florence Vandamm. It appeared in the October 1931 Vanity Fair.
The premium giclée print is produced on thick (310 gsm), textured watercolor paper made from alpha cellulous wood pulp that is acid free. It shares the same vivid colors, accuracy, and exceptional resolution that make giclée prints the standard for museums and galleries around the world.
The premium photographic print is digitally printed on high-gloss premium photographic paper. The result is a unique silver pearlescent finish with stunning visual impact and depth, suitable for museum or gallery display.
The stretched canvas print is the result of sophisticated digital printing technology in which the image is printed directly onto an artist-grade, 100% cotton canvas. The canvas is then expertly stretched around 1.5" wooden bars and carefully finished with hand-painted edges. An acrylic coating protects the stunning giclée print from dust, moisture and fading. (Canvas may not be available for all prints.)
