Eve Arnold photo

Post by Fred G. Unn »

The latest Magnum Photos "Square Print" sale just went live (they do it a few times a year, but the available photos are always different) and I thought this Eve Arnold photo of Marlene Dietrich was pretty cool with the light shining through the hand copied part.

Can anyone make out what she's singing, either from the title or the music? Just curious.

It's also interesting the copyist didn't use manuscript paper with room for a title. Maybe they were on a deadline and didn't have it available, but often you would see paper like this used for the first page and the title would be stamped.
