About This Image
Signed and dated on recto of print. Titled on mount. Hinged to original album page (16-1/2 x 13-5/8 inches). These true vintage prints on matte paper by Bing are extremely rare, especially when they are on her own album pages. See: Larisa Dryansky, Ilse Bing, Photography Through the Looking Glass (Abrams, NY) p.174 for a slightly different cropping of the same image. Daisy Fellowes (née Marguerite Séverine Philippine Decazes de Glücksbierg, (April 29, 1890-December 13, 1962), was a celebrated 20th-century society figure, acclaimed beauty, minor novelist and poet, editor-in-chief of French Harper's Bazaar, fashion icon, and an heiress to the Singer sewing machine fortune. In addition to being notorious for her amorous exploits, she was also known as one of the most daring fashion plates of the 20th century, arguably the most important patron of the surrealist couturier Elsa Schiaparelli. She died in Paris.
