Catalogue Note

This portrait in profile bears a strong resemblance to Joseph Stella’s Portrait of Samuel Putnam (n.d., Private collection). An American editor, publisher, and author, Putnam was a frequent contributor to The Chicago Tribune, Evening Post and publications such as the Daily Worker. He later gained widespread recognition as a prolific literary translator and an expert on the literature of Brazil.
