Karl Struss was a Pictorialist. He tends to have small prints that are very nicely printed. He later became a film maker on many important films.

This photograph would have been a relatively quick exposure. Models did not have to hold these positions a long time. (Paul Martineau, Curator of Photographs, J. Paul Getty Museum, 8/18/2021)
