A very rare original first generation gelatin silver sepia antique photograph of the young and nude artfully posed film legend Jean Harlow. From her infamous romp in Los Angeles' Griffith Park. This was a frequent location for nude photo shoots by Edwin Bower Hesser who took this photograph and used it and hundreds of others in his s - early 30s Art Studies Photo Periodicals. Harlow was an unknown model at this time much like Norma Jean in her pre - Marilyn Monroe Blue Book model agency pin-up model days the following year her career took off on a tragically short trajectory as she appeared in the Howard Hughes feature film "Hell's Angels". This photo shoot has been documented in recent editions of Playboy Magazine which has run several articles on Hesser and this photo shoot with the young Jean Harlow specifically. This is the original document -- not a reprint of any kind, we have several stills from this collection we will be offering at Grapefruit Moon Gallery.
