Hurrell's Hollywood Portraits
by Mark A. Vieira
Hardcover from Harry N. Abrams
Between 1928 and 1942 George Hurrell photographed all the great Hollywood stars. Perhaps his most notable collaboration was with Joan Crawford: a pair of "before and after" photographs reveal the extent of her debt to Hurrell's retouching techniques. This book presents 275 examples of his work.
They had faces then, in the golden age of Hollywood when a publicity photo could make or break a star. The visual power of George Hurrell's portraits, with their Rembrandtesque lighting and dramatic poses, shaped the careers of such stars as Joan Crawford, Jean Harlow, and Jane Russell, and did as much or more to establish them as their film performances. Mark Vieira, who adopted Hurrell's techniques and uses them to this day, explains how the master portraitist lit and retouched his photographs--a portrait of Crawford before and after retouching reveals what an artist the one-time painter really was--and analyzes their impact.
