Description
Count Lattanzio Firmian, an Italian artist from Tentino, Italy paints a portrait of Oy Fah (Flower of love) at the Hotel Huntington. The Count, looking dapper in a dark suit, works at the tall easel that has been placed next to his model, who happens to be sitting on a stone 'pedestal' located within the Hotel Huntington's gardens. She is wearing a dark silk kimono outfit consisting of a loose-fitting top and pants; a white flower is behind her right ear. A covered pedestrian bridge in the background completes the beautiful view. Photo dated January 27, 1926.
