Photo by Studio Arnal

Today EFSP presents some old film star postcards which will allow you to have a glimpse of the work of the French photo studio Arnal. The small studio was located at the time in Paris at the Boulevard de Rochechouart, the street situated at the foot of Montmartre. In the 1930s, Arnal was specialised in glamorous portraits of stars of the stage and the screen. They were produced on many postcard of publishers like Editions Chantal and Cinémagazine-Édition. The Lithuanian exile photographer Izis (Izraëlis Biderman), to whom the city of Paris paid tribute in 2010 with the exbibition ‘Izis, Paris des rêves’, worked at studio Arnal in 1933-1934.
