Madame d'Ora

$ 50.00| £ 39.99 (* recommended retail price)

Discover the oeuvre of legendary fashion and society photographer Madame d’Ora, who with her work documented both the glamour and the tragedy of 20th century Europe.

Born Dora Kallmus (1881-1963), the Austrian fashion and portrait photographer who went by the moniker Madame d’Ora was the most acclaimed portraitist of fin de siècle Vienna. After relocating to Paris in the 1920s she created one of the most stylish Art Deco studios, where her models included Pablo Picasso, Josephine Baker, and Collette, among many others. This catalogue, accompanying the largest exhibition devoted to Madame d’Ora ever presented in the United States, will consist of sections devoted to the different periods of the photographer's life, from her early upbringing as the daughter of Jewish intellectuals in Vienna, to her days as a premier society portraitist, through her survival during the Holocaust.
