Found on EBay – Nudes by Witzel

Nudes, Witzel

Nudes, Witzel Nudes, Witzel

A set of five nude photos (this is the tamest one) by the Witzel studio has been listed on EBay. Witzel was one of the leading portrait studios in Los Angeles and did many early publicity photos for the theater and films. These are listed as Buy It Now for $975. As with anything on EBay, an item and vendor should be evaluated thoroughly before submitting a bid.

    He didn’t do a lot of nudes, because I’ve seen virtually none. He mostly took photos of people clothed, unlike Alfred Cheney Johnston or Edwin Bower Hesser.

    I love Witzel! I wish some photo collector would do a coffee-table book on him, he was so important and talented, and no one remembers him.
