A rare and wonderfully designed image, created by Vigneau at his pioneering Parisian firm Studio Lecram which specialized in advertising photography. Vigneau had earlier experimented in sculpture and produced a set of mannequins which were taken as subjects by Man Ray, Outerbridge and others. At Studio Lecram his assistants included Robert Doisneau.
