Both original prints with a matte finish, depicting the star in what is probably the best-known headshot of her 50+ year career, photographer's blindstamp in the lower right corner reads "Photograph by / Eugene Robert Richee," the first inscribed in white fountain pen ink in the lower right corner "To / My Darling Sister / Beverly / Love / Mae;" the second also inscribed in white fountain pen ink in the lower right corner "To / My Darling brother / Jack / Mae;" included with a signed 'Letter of Provenance' from John West, Mae's nephew. (Please note Beverly's is somewhat creased as well as stained on the upper left side; Jack's is slightly trimmed on the left side and has tape residue on the back.)
