GHD Muse

ruth-19282

Alfred Cheney Johnston was the official photographer of the Zeigfeld Follies. His portraits of the Zeigfeld Girls are considered fine art today, and his original vintage 14×18 prints of Ruth Etting sell for hundreds of dollars. The nude of Ruth Etting above is the only known nude image of the singer, and for an Alfred Cheney Johnston nude, it’s rather chaste – since she is strategically covered by the shawl.
Rising to fame in the twenties and early thirties, Ruth Etting was renowned for her great beauty, her gorgeous voice and her tragic life. She starred on Broadway, made movies in Hollywood, married a mobster, had numerous hit-records, fell in love and was known as America’s Sweetheart of Song.
