Carl Van Vechten Self-Portrait With Ethel Waters
Carl Van Vechten made many portraits of the great black blues singer and actress. Here he poses with her himself in an intimate pose. His decorative outfit is interesting.
9 7/8" x 7 7/8" matte gelatin silver print on heavy paper with Van Vechten's blindstamp. Left side is a little dark as characteristic of many of his prints. Contact me for other portraits of Waters by Van Vechten.
