DESCRIPTION:  Signed on recto of mount by the photographer and, apparently, by the artist as well. Also photographer and subject are printed in ink on the verso of the mount, probably by the photographer. Born in 1918, Arnold Newman became one of America's leading portrait photographers since the 1940s. He was considered to be a master of the environmental portrait. He died in 2006 and his archive went to the University of Texas at Austin. Arnold Newman lived and worked in New York City for most of his career as a freelance photographer for magazines like Fortune, Life, Newsweek, and Esquire, among others. His professional work began, however, in Miami and West Palm Beach in 1938, where he also developed a mature vision for making socially conscious photographs of urban poor. By the mid-1940s, after a short tenure in Philadelphia, he had found his own vision in the strong empathy he had for artists and their world. Both Alfred Stieglitz and Beaumont Newhall encouraged and supported his work in this direction, and by 1945 Newman moved to New York to stay. In 1999 he won the International Center for Photography's Infinity Award for Master of Photography. Jacques Lipchitz (August 22, 1891 - May 16, 1973) was a noted Cubist sculptor, who was part of the Montmatre and Montparnasse artist scenes, which included Juan Gris, Pablo Picasso and his friend, Amedeo Modigliani.
