"Clarence F. Busch painted Claire Luce in an ostrich costume she wore for a #1920s Ziegfeld Follies. Back then, @nytimes made a habit of photographing artists with both their works of art and the people depicted in those works. The photos we're sharing this #nytweekender date from the years 1918 to 1942, when culture watchers were debating the place of photography among the older, more handmade arts like painting and sculpture. We found this picture in our #archives, known lovingly as the "morgue." We'll share more images of artists and their muses this #nytweekender." By nytimes on Instagram.
