Item Details

Original photographic portrait of the poet by the wife of E. E. Cummings, gelatin silver print, 9 1/2 x 7 3/4 inches, mounted, signed by the photographer just below the image.

MOREHOUSE, Marion. Slight scratch, otherwise in fine condition. Marion Morehouse, the "first super model", was also a distinguished photographer. Morehouse met Cummings in 1934, and the couple remained together until Cummings died in 1962. Both were good friends of the Asian American poet Jose Garcia Villa, who was also a good friend of Dylan Thomas. It was Morehouse's portrait of Thomas that was used for the poet's Collected Poems (1952).
