Art Description

New Media: Digital on Other.

I felt it was high time for another of my Edward Steichen-like Hollywood makeovers. When I’m in need of some glamour, I head straight for the silent movie headshots of the1920s, especially as found on Hello Tuesday at Deviant Art, which is where I discovered this photograph of Louise Brooks.

Some of you may remember that I was originally inspired by Edward Steichen's photograph of actress Gloria Swanson covered in lace (Museum of Modern Art). I’ve already done one such of Louise Brooks and this is ‘Take 2’!

In what one might say is now time-honoured fashion, I overlaid Brooks with this lace effect vintage wallpaper from MGB-Stock.
