Description

Our Portrait of a Woman with Gold Background postcard is likely a portrait of Fania Marinoff (1890-1971), a stage and screen actress who performed with the Greenwich Village Players. Marinoff was the wife of the novelist and photographer Carl Van Vechten, himself a key exponent of the Harlem Renaissance to the broader cultural world.


Spanning the fields of painting, drawing, graphic design, interior design, and the decorative arts, Winold Reiss brought a European modernist sensibility to the American public via visual culture embedded in daily life. Nowhere was this impact clearer than in his adopted home, New York City, where he emigrated from Germany in 1913. Inspired by New York’s dynamism, vibrant architecture, and diversity, his art was featured in public spaces and popular media across the city. Exhibition on view July 1, 2022 – October 9, 2022.
