Artist Statement

Shot in 1933 by Dutch photographer Willem van de Poll (1895-1970), Untitled (Boots & Champagne) features the gleefully-posed gams of model Eva Waldschmidt perched on a confetti covered table. In typical van de Poll form, the snap encapsulates an entire experience. Empty bottles of bubbly lay entangled in streamers atop a creased table cloth lightly rumpled beneath pointed toes. The dark suede of the boots is striking and the only element in sharp focus. Distinct reflections in the glass shine bright as though the lights have come up at the end of the celebration, but this gal parties on

Why We Love It

Van de Poll was a champion of the New Photography movement, which focused on graphic design-infused image composition over subject. Characterized by close-cropping, strategic blurring, and unusual angles, van de Poll’s interpretation of this photographic style is splendidly cinematic. He invites you to step into the scene and catch that post-party second wind—we could all use the boost amirite? Read more on the blog!

Willem van de Poll

Born in Amsterdam in 1895, Willem van de Poll moved to Vienna in 1919 to train, and shortly after, began his career as an independent itinerant press photographer throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Indonesia. He enjoyed great success not only in photojournalism for various magazines and news agencies but also in advertising photography and fashion reporting for Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. His career expanded to a multitude of industries and influential circles, and during WWII, he became the house photographer for the Dutch Royal Family.
