A small poster, reproducing a perhaps vintage 1920's sepia-toned photograph of a young African-America woman posing nude in front of fireplace, issued by the pioneering Los Angeles fine art photography gallery G. Ray Hawkins, to promote an exhibition of photographs by the noted Harlem Renaissance African-American photographer, JAMES VAN DER ZEE (1886-1983). Van Der Zee's works are coveted today, selling at auctions of fine photographs and African-American memorabilia and art. This piece measures 24" by 18" in silvery metal frame. Condition is very good, I note some light paper ripples (which the camera seems to exaggerate). What may appear as a roughly vertical light stain at right center margin is just a smudge entirely on the glass. Allow for reflections in a few images.
