Weston apparently gifted this print to his paramour Lydia Parker; by descent to the Present Owner.
 
A print of this image is in the collection of University of California at Santa Cruz. Stone was the first wife of Weston's oldest son, Brett. In anticipation of a costume party Stone shaved her head to look like Harald Kreutzberg, the well-known dancer.
