Ernestine Schumann-Heink


Portrait of Ernestine Schumann-Heink. She is dressed in a white or light-colored, lace-trimmed dress with a boa draped around her right arm and falling toward the floor on her left side. A flower, possibly a rose, dangles by the stem from her right hand. She is wearing earrings and a large, decorated white or light-colored hat of a style popular in the early 1900's. She is leaning against a piece of furniture, possibly a table, and behind her is a painting or backdrop of trees and sky. The photograph is inscribed to Lois Steers.
