    Lina Basquette, a dancer developed on the West Coast, gained fame at an early age as prima ballerina for Ziegfeld's Follies. She was photographed at every stage of her development from elementary dance student to Hollywood movie star. Of these portraits, the most interesting are the two images by Paul Barron before he formed DeBarron Studio. These images may have convinced Flo Ziegfeld to hire the photographer as the contract photographer for the Follies during 1927-28. The contract probably convinced Barron to establish his upscale portrait palace in Manhattan.
