Her Eyes Are Blue

What was I thinking?
I have a love affair with the era of 1880-1920’s. Famous photographer Edward Steichen (1879-1973) worked with Conde Nast, Vogue and Vanity Fair but he was a painter by training. He was famous for photographing couture and soft focus images of actresses. In 1924, he photographed Gloria Swanson using lace as a filter. His depiction captured the beauty of the lace, but I was more drawn to her eyes. In real life her eyes were said to be blue much like the entirety of the painting.

Dedicated to Gloria May Josephine Swanson (March 27, 1899 – April 4, 1983). Gloria was a star in the silent film era as both an actress and a fashion icon, especially under the direction of Cecil B. DeMille. Throughout the 1920s,She was one of Hollywood’s top box office draws.
