This image has been imitated a few times, if not for the personality of the picture, then surely for the decor- even though not quite as much as it has happened with his even more famous: “Mainbocher Corset, 1939” or “Girl in a corset” from his black and white period. This interior picture was imitated in a fashion shoot with Linda Evangelista by Steven Meisel and another time in an article about the life of Pauline with actress Ileana Douglas who they say resembles her a lot. This room is huge remember this is a ‘hidden’ or secret door, probably not the main one, and maybe just to go faster to the other wing of the house, in a seating area of this room we can see a beautiful satin sofa. In this beautiful chinoiserie wallpapered room, we see peeking through the door, Baroness Pauline de Rothschild, of American parents, grew up in Paris then moved to the US then Paris again. Wife of Baron Philippe de Rothschild, owner of Chateau Mouton‐Rothschild, the famous French wine property, considered one of the most sophisticated women of her era, being the first women to be named in the international best-dressed list hall of fame - she is still considered one of the grandest hostesses ever but she was also considered way too smart and well read, even cancelling important dinners to stay home finishing books. Once dressed by masters like Balenciaga and Yves Saint Laurent. The “Around That Time, portfolios are literally a time capsule of style and design from the 1960s-1980s. The images chosen for this portfolio are a who’s who of the tastemakers and influencers from one of the most exciting and innovative periods of the twentieth century. Never before was there a moment quite like this, and never before or since has there been a photographer of such unique talent as Horst P. Horst.”

  • Horst P. Horst German-American, 1906-1999 (born Horst Paul Albert Bohrmann) was one of the towering figures of 20th-century fashion photography. Best known for his work with Vogue—who called him “photography’s alchemist”—Horst rose to prominence in Paris in the interwar years, publishing his first work with the magazine in 1931. In the decades that followed, Horst’s experimentations with radical composition, nudity, double exposures, and other avant-garde techniques would produce some of the most iconic fashion images ever, like Mainbocher Corset and Lisa with Harp (both 1939). As The New York Times once described, “Horst tamed the avant-garde to serve fashion.” Though associated most closely with fashion photography, Horst captured portraits of many of the 20th century’s brightest luminaries, dabbling with influences as far-ranging as Surrealism and Romanticism. “I like taking photographs because I like life,” he once said. “And I love photographing people best of all because most of all I love humanity.”
