JAMES VANDERZEE (1886 - 1983)
Untitled (Young Man at Home of Josephine Becton).
Silver print, 1934. 251x200 mm; 9 7/8x7 7/8 inches, full margins. Signed and inscribed "NYC 1934" by VanDerZee in the negative. With VanDerZee's "GGG Photo Studio" ink hand stamp on verso.
VanDerZee often staged different sitters in the same setting for series of photographs. This photograph of a young boy at a piano, with Valentine's Day chocolates directly in front of him, recalls the same image as At Home, Josephine Becton, with only the ottoman shifting position.
