Norma TalmadgeNorma TalmadgeNorma Talmadge 1922. This is Norma Talmadge, a beautiful silent film star of the early 20th Century. I found the original black and white had been scanned and posted on the internet as I did research on the project resulting in my 'Vintage Beauty' gallery on this site. I loved the dress and the chair and the pose so set out to color enhance Ms. Talmadge and give her new life. After I printed the image on Velvet Fine Art paper by Epson, I applied tiny light-catching materials to replicate the dress ornamentation as it might have appeared in 1919. The finished piece is 16x20 and joins others in my growing collection of glamorous women of the era. The video helps the viewer to imagine how exciting this piece is in person. What do you think?
