Description: 

George White was variously skilled as a producer, director, author, dancer, and actor. He began dancing at a young age for a burlesque dancing team. He later performed in shows such as the "Ziegfeld Follies" and "The Pleasure Seekers", amongst others. In 1919, he produced and directed a series called George White's "Scandals", which matched popular music of the time with fast-moving sketches and glamorous women. In this traditional portrait, White wears a suit jacket and tie with hair oiled back. He holds a muted expression, although the obscurity of his iris' make his gaze pierce through to the viewer.
