Alfred Cheney Johnston, Portfolio with photographs of Norma Shearer and an unidentified man.

Lot 25: Alfred Cheney Johnston, Portfolio with photographs of Norma Shearer and an unidentified man.

Auction Date: Jun 26, 2020

Estimate: $400 - $1,000

Description: Alfred Cheney Johnston, Portfolio with photographs of Norma Shearer and an unidentified man. Johnston (1885 – 1971) revolutionized entertainment photography with his portraits of Ziegfield Follies dancers, often nude. He also photographed film stars. This is a very rare large portfolio, 22 x 14 inches, with decorative identification on the cover. It contains a profile of an actress, probably Norma Shearer, and an unidentified man, both 13 x 10 inch gelatin silver prints, ca. 1920, with Johnston’s signature on the mounts. Shearer (1902 – 1943) was a major silent film star. A very similar profile of her by Johnston sold at a Phillips auction in 2007 for $2640. The second scan is of that photograph. The scan of the portfolio cover only shows the part with the lettering. The whole textured paper portfolio is larger. Both photograph have silvering, but no damage.

This is a gelatin silver print titled 'Pierrot Serenading Three Women' by renowned Ziegfeld Follies photographer Alfred Cheney Johnston. Celebrated mime Pierrot of the Fete Galante is shown entertaining three women dressed in fanciful hats and dresses. The photograph shows a charming moment from the glitz and glamor of the Jazz Age.

Photo cut to round shape and mounted to backing board. Completely adhered to mount and therefore it is not possible to view verso. Small amount of silvering and possible re-touch in bottom center figure's face. Otherwise good condition.

Alfred Cheney Johnston (American, 1885)

Born in New York City, Alfred Cheney Johnston attended the Art Students League and the National Academy of Design, where he studied to be an illustrator. Johnston began to experiment with photography by taking portraits of friends and fellow students, applying his knowledge from painting classes to his portrait photography. The artist is perhaps best known for his work as the official photographer of the Ziegfeld Follies, with his creation of the "Ziegfeld Girl" setting a new standard of beauty for a generation of Americans. Over two hundred of his prints were donated to the Library of Congress in Washington, DC.
