Description: 

Rita Gould was a Hollywood actress born in the Kherson Governorate of Russia. She was known for her roles in "Girls' Dormitory" (1936), "He Couldn't Say No" (1938) and "Kiss and Make-Up" (1934). In this portrait, Hixon captures Gould in an elegant pose, turning her cheek to the camera with one index finger resting on her chin that suggests the motion. Her hair is slicked back and out of view, her eyebrows are sharp, and she is well-adorned in multiple strings of pearls, a jewel ring, and numerous studded bangles. Hixon contrasts the slick, dark curvature of her head with bright sketched lines around the back of her head and down her neck.
