9 1/8 x 7 1/8- inch gelatin silver print, ferrotyped. A wonderful rich contact print from the full negative, with D’Ora’s signature in the negative. There are also cropping lines in the negative. The Viennese Dora Kalmus took the name D’Ora and worked in partnership with Arthur Benda, whose last name is the same as that of this subject. Most of her subjects were Viennese or other European, but Marion Benda was a Ziegfield girl, the last lover of Rudolph Valentino. The print is notable for its wonderful lighting, showing the texture of skin, cloth, and the sparkles on her wrist and in her hair.
