Doris Ulmann (1882-1934), although prolific, the majority of her photographs are unique prints, and of these, most are left unsigned. As was her practice, Doris Ulmann only SIGNED those photographs she exhibited or intended to exhibit. She is particularly well known for her portraiture, having published several portfolios in magazines as well as three books of portraits.
This print appears as Figure 22, page 58, in Philip Walker Jacobs' excellent THE LIFE AND PHOTOGRAPHY OF DORIS ULMANN. The University of Kentucky Press, 2001.
