Original oversized semi-glossy 16 x 20 silver gelatin photo of a young Steve McQueen in close-up, signed on the reverse in ink by the photographer, "Roy Schatt." Reverse also bears Roy Schatt credit stamps. In fine condition.

Born in New York City, Schatt (1909-2002) is remembered for his 'method photography' of personalities associated with The Actors Studio during the Lee Strasberg era, using natural light to capture likenesses of icons such as James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, and Steve McQueen in candid, unstaged settings. Schatt's work has been exhibited at the International Center of Photography in NYC, the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
