    The subject of the first and only International Salon of Portrait Photography, 21-year old Anne-Marie Edvina was selected for the "rare symmetry of her face." 30 noted photographers were invited to shoot Edvina, ultimately producing a remarkably multifaceted study of a single subject. The photographers ranged from Surrealists Man Ray and Maurice Tabard to photojournalists Robert Doisneau and Edouard Boubat, with Klein using his background as a fashion photographer to contribute this sleek, edgy, almost brooding image.

    Estimate: $1,500 - $2,500.
