Clara Sipprell was a Canadian-born, early 20th century photographer who lived most of her life in the United States. She was well-known for her pictorial landscapes and for portraits of many famous actors, artists, writers and scientists. As a portrait photographer, Sipprell sought to convey a sense of the whole person and what made each unique. She was a traditional pictorialist, interested in simple beauty and soft-focus imagery, and she kept this same aesthetic vision whether she was taking portraits, landscapes or still-lifes.
