[Jacobi]. Jacobi, Lottte (photographer).

Einstein in the Leather Jacket.

(New York atelier) 1938 8 x 10 Gelatin silver print. Pencil signed lower right.
Taken during a sitting in Princeton, New Jersey, in 1938. Einstein was asked by Life magazine to sit for a photographer to do a photo series. He obliged, as long as the photographer was his Berlin compatriot "Miss Jacobi." This image was rejected by the magazine as too informal, but it has proven to be Jacobi's most popular and recognizable image. Showing the scientist Einstein in his informal, photogenic brilliance.
