Footnotes

  • Coburn admired Shannon's paintings and lithographs before he 'saw his finely chiselled profile at a reception...Later, in his large studio, flooded with light and filled with the choice things of art, his own and others, a Grecian torso I remember, and rare examples of Oriental art, I went to see him, and it was here amid such fitting surroundings that I made my photograph. Some men seem to know instinctively how to construct just the right sort of background for themselves, and this is more important for an artist, perhaps than for most people, but everyone does it to a greater extent, consciously or unconsciously.'

    Coburn personally supervised the creation of his photogravures on his own copper plate press.
