A large group of photos of Mary Pickford taken by Fred Hartsook
71 different silver gelatin borderless doubleweight vintage photographs of Pickford, 9.5 x 7.5 in., during her peak as "America's Sweetheart." Fred Hartsook took what are arguably the most recognized portraits of Pickford as the beloved "Little Mary," the queen of movie patrons' hearts, between 1917 and 1919. The images here show Pickford at home, playing the piano, tending to her garden, getting into her car, knitting, and reading. Almost always she is surrounded by flowers or with her hair backlit, giving her an ethereal and angelic quality. Throughout her career, Pickford was photographed by the most famous still photographers in the world, but few captured her essence as America's Sweetheart quite like Hartsook.
8 x 10 x 1.25 in.
