This child study by Charles Hellmuth is a multiple gum-bichromate print done on laid paper. The exhibition print shows a young girl with hair bow silhouetted against an interior window. The photograph, which may date to as early as around 1920 based on other examples held by this archive was exhibited in the 1923 Pittsburgh Salon as well as the International Salon hosted by the Pictorial Photographers of America in New York City in May, 1923.
