DescriptionJean Harlow Mammoth Print from the Portfolio Hurrell I (1934/printed later). Original, museum archival quality 34" x 48" gelatin silver double-weight photographic print mounted to board. Made from an original negative created by George Hurrell and hand developed, dodged, and burned under Hurrell's personal direction. The quintessential glamour photograph, and Hurrell's signature piece. This image was captured at
Jean Harlow's home on October 18th, 1934 and remains to this day a spellbinding evocation of the starlet's animal
allure and the lavish sensuality of Golden Age Hollywood.
Signed by Hurrell in white ink in the lower right corner, and edition numbered 37/60 at bottom left. Custom matted and framed. Unexamined out of frame. COA from Heritage Auctions.
