Hey Guys,

Desperatley trying to get a hold of a picture for a friends birthday but I cant quite remember the photographer/sitter - this could be a tough one!!

Its a photo from about the 1920s, a woman with lace over her face and its really haunting..big staring eyes etc!! Cant quite remember the photographers name but can vaguely remember it sounding almost german, or belgian or something! Of course Ive hit google but cant find the image im looking for!

Im sure I remember it in an exhibition I saw a few years ago, went to the national portrait gallery today to try and find it but couldnt see anything...off to waterstones tomorrow to try and look at the books to see what they throw at me!

Basically I want a poster or postcard of that particular photograph if anyone could help Id be made up and so would my friend!!

Its the cover picture of the Vanity Fair book that went with the exhibition held at the National Potratit Gallery a couple of years ago.
I have the book somewhere.
