Summary

Discover the work of legendary fashion and society photographer Madame d'Ora, who documented both the glamour and the tragedy of 20th-century Europe.

Born Dora Kallmus (1881-1963), the Austrian fashion and portrait photographer who went by the moniker Madame d'Ora was the most acclaimed portraitist of fin de siècle Vienna. After relocating to Paris in the 1920s, she opened one of the most stylish Art Deco portrait studios where her models included Pablo Picasso, Josephine Baker, and Collette, among many others. This book, accompanying the largest exhibition devoted to Madame d'Ora ever presented in the United States, includes sections focusing on the different periods of the photographer's life, from her early upbringing as the daughter of Jewish intellectuals in Vienna, to her days as a premier society portraitist, through her survival during the Holocaust.
