From a very young age, Florence Meyer lived her life among artists and practiced her violin in the studio of sculptor Constantin Brancusi. She later became a dancer and, after moving to Los Angeles, pursued photography with the occasional instruction of Man Ray. Man Ray may have made the masks in the background of this image.
