    Did Karsch take the image of J.P. Morgan, sitting in the leather chair with his hands on the steel arm-rests?

    You may be referring to the picture taken by Edward Steichen. It was one of his best known images. It does have a style similar to Karsch's churchill portrait.

    Here's the image to which I was referring. Thank you. I have been searching for this for nearly 25 years... since last I saw it.

    The image is actually a Steichen, not a Curtis as that link would lead you to believe. I see you live in New York. An original of that image is on display right now at the Guggenheim in the 'Hands' exhibition. Just saw it two days ago. Interesting exhibit.

    First, where can I get some of that "radioactive butter"?

    Second, one of the interesting things about the Steichen image of JP Morgan is that in the print only the part of the armrest ahead of his left hand shows and it looks just like Morgan is holding a dagger in his hand. Also, this print was shown to Morgan shortly after it was made and he did not like it. Steichen latter produced the print and included it in a gallery show. Someone saw it and told Morgan who upon seeing it thought it was a great image and wanted to purchase it. Stiechen refused to sell the print to the great JP Morgan.

    Close, is was Edward Sheriff Curtis...isn't the internet great. BTW, Curtis also used Orotones for a lot of his work..should check them out, very different.

    As to Karsch, his work is some of the best, his Churchill is one of my favorites
