A hard-boiled and erotically posed masterful gallery portrait photograph of Winifred Shaw, from her role in the Rodger's and Hart play "Simple Simon." Shaw, a unique beauty with vixenish jazz age features, was soon to become a Hollywood musical performer in the wild Depression era productions of the 1930s. In this photograph by Roberts, with its naturalistic styling, and provocative smoking view, Winifred Shaw is shown in all her unique beauty and iconic eroticism. A rare example of the raw sexuality of jazz age theater photography.
