Untitled De Meyer, Baron Adolf  (American, 1868-1946)

A prominent figure in the pictorialist movement, Adolf de Meyer became a member of the Linked Ring in 1903 before meeting Alfred Stieglitz and joining the Photo Secession movement. He has also exhibited his works three times at Gallery 291 in New York. In 1910, Condé Montrose Nast offered him to work in the editorial staff of Vogue where he would become one of the pioneering figures of fashion photography. Master of pigmentary techniques and excellent portrait painter, fanciful and social character, ennobled by Frederick Augustus III of Saxony, Adolf de Meyer produced throughout his career many portraits of figures from the artistic and intellectual world, as well as from the good society of this turn of the century.
