Two Gentlemen and a Woman


I love this picture!

The correspondence between the character with the hat and the man photographed and the relationship between them and the seductive woman. Also, the vertical stripes of the painting versus the horizontal stripes of the hut. The photography is rich in formal, colorful and compositional joy. Douze points from me.


The archival record states that the photo was taken for Mayer Investment Company in 1959 but who knew who the man in the photo was?
