    Fine art, but for me the model stood too close to the wall.

Russell Ball
Time Period: 1920s-1930s (?)
Location: Los Angeles
“Independent who contracted with M.G.M. periodically.
Dynamic poses and spectacularly beautiful prints signed with green ink “Ball” on right bottom corner.
Produced some of the finest images of the golden age.”

Gerald Carpenter
Time Period: 1910s-1920s (?)
Location: Los Angeles
“Began in the 1910s using the NY theatrical portrait convention of presenting the head, torso, or figure resolving out of a white background. Later developed a lustrously tonal high definition style in a set of famous portraits of Mary Miles Minter for Flying A. Sig: Carpenter, LA with name in squarish letters.”
