Jack Dempsey's Arm, c. 1920
I have always loved this painted press print of boxer Jack Dempsey's arm (anonymous, c. 1920; 6" x 8"), also from David Winter's gallery. Unfortunately, it too is sold. But we can enjoy the surreal beauty it exudes as the newspaper retouchers from that period applied their craft for newspaper publication. This is an awesome photo.
