John Rawlings (1912 – 1970) single-handedly gave commercial fashion photography a sharp artistic focus. He transformed it into a medium brimming with color, light and fascinating composition. Rawlings created over 200 magazine covers for Conde-Nast. When his work for “Vogue” and “Glamour” hit the stands, sales and respect for fashion photography skyrocketed.

In this artistic, abstract photograph, a model is ensconced in darkness, her features obscured by a brushstroke treatment to the negative, or perhaps to a screen in front of the camera. She is seen in profile and wears a white fur-trimmed coat and hat. The photograph, by John Rawlings, appeared in the December 15, 1944, Vogue, in the middle of the noted photographer's 30-year career with Condé Nast.

The premium giclée print is produced on thick (310 gsm), textured watercolor paper made from alpha cellulous wood pulp that is acid free. It shares the same vivid colors, accuracy, and exceptional resolution that make giclée prints the standard for museums and galleries around the world.
The premium photographic print is digitally printed on high-gloss premium photographic paper. The result is a unique silver pearlescent finish with stunning visual impact and depth, suitable for museum or gallery display.
The stretched canvas print is the result of sophisticated digital printing technology in which the image is printed directly onto an artist-grade, 100% cotton canvas. The canvas is then expertly stretched around 1.5" wooden bars and carefully finished with hand-painted edges. An acrylic coating protects the stunning giclée print from dust, moisture and fading. (Canvas may not be available for all prints.)
