Lady Ostapeck Portfolio Number Two


A second Lady Ostapeck book is available. The 126-page Somewhere In Time Portfolio Book Series No. 2 may be ordered for $32.50 plus shipping from the PhotoCenter, 404 River St., Troy, NY 12180-2821; phone 518-273-0100; info@photocentertroy.org.

The recently published exhibition catalogue is an exquisite 126-page book that also includes the series of portraits of Sandra Balint titled “Women of the World.”

Lady was given an antique doll in childhood (the 1920s) that remained remarkably intact.  Named Suoma Ellen Elizabeth, Lady created settings and appropriate garb to make portraits of Ellen Elizabeth as she traversed from infancy, through childhood, to maturity, and as a grandmother. This series of doll portraits, made with considerable attention to accurate detail, has never before been exhibited intact in the United States.

The children's portraits are made in Lady's incomparable Victorian-era style of portraiture, except that no artist of that period was Lady's equal in lavishing detail.

Sandra Balint returned to Lady's studio annually during the 1990s for a series of stunning portraits, each made to represent a persona, usually of a famous woman in a bygone era.
