Hood Quarterly, autumn 2007

Charles Fairfax Murray was a close associate of Edward Burne-Jones (1833– 1898), one of the leading so-called Pre-Raphaelite artists active in England in the late nineteenth century. They advocated a revival of interest in medieval art and subject matter, a rebellion against conventional ideas and academic styles, and an assertion of the importance of emotion over intellect.

From four generations of photographers, Lotte Jacobi took over her father’s Berlin photographic studio in 1927. She became one of the best-known photographers in Germany, particularly noted for her portraits of celebrities and artists. In 1935 she was forced to flee Nazi Germany and opened a studio and gallery in New York City, where she continued to pursue portraiture while freelancing as a photographer for Life magazine.
