Fay Wray as “Ophelia”

Print: probably 1925 - 1939H x L : 25.4 x 20.2 cm

Edward Steichen photographed Fay Wray for the August 1930 issue of Vanity Fair as Ophelia from Shakespeare’s Hamlet. It is remarkable, that – according to the inscription on the front of the photograph - Steichen took the portrait two years before it was actually published. This photograph was apparently not used to promote a project, but to profile the actress, who never played the role of Ophelia.
