Description: 

Zoe Barnett was an actress in musical comedies with roles in feature Broadway performances such as "The Debutante" (1914) and "Rose Girl" (1921) among others. She is perhaps most remembered for her leading role in the play "Nobody's Home" (1915) as Miss "Tony" Miller, for which she was commended for her gracefulness, good humor, and clever recitation acts. In this photograph, she holds a bust of a nondescript female figure before her, embodying its expression as her own. Barnett wears a satin head wrap with an ornament centered just above her eyes. Her head wrap along with her gaze, which falls upon the head of the bust, calls on the image of a fortune teller looking into a crystal ball.
