Three large (11" x 14") Original Hand-tinted Photographs by Rudolph Rossi circa 1950. Rossi was a member of an informal camera club in New York City where he took photographs of Bettie Page and other amateur models, then meticulously painted each black and white photograph by hand to create the illusion of color photography. The models for the camera club shootings (including Bettie Page) were found from all over New York City. While the three models here are all seemingly posing alone, it is possible Rossi "painted out" other participants after making large prints in his home studio.
Note gold tint he applied to the jewelry on the blond!
