    Pre-Lot Text

    ...the relatively 'straight' yet magnificently elegant and character-filled portraits of two friends, each a stunning beauty, Dorothy Hill and Tanja Ramm - all these images held their own among the greatest studio portraiture. (Livingston: Lee Miller Photographer, p. 43)


    Literature

    Livingston, Lee Miller: Photographer, Thames & Hudson, p. 109 for another, very similar portrait of Hill
