A classic pictorialist image by Sigismund Blumann (active 1900s-1930s), a Bay Area photographer active in the California Camera and Los Angeles Camera Clubs. Always interested in alternative processes, he was also a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society. In the 1930s, while editing 'Camera Craft' magazine, he established a Print Service Department, which enabled readers to purchase salon prints for their own collections. He noted: 'There is no educational factor in art so potent as a collection of pictures.' (source: Christian Peterson, 'After the Photo Succession.')
