  • (Zweig, Stefan.) Sternberger, Marcel

    Portrait of Novelist Stefan Zweig. London, 1938, printed 2017

    Like Einstein and Freud, Sternberger had known Zweig from before the war. The Austrian novelist and playwright was among the most popular writers in the world in the 1920s and 1930s. His work was recently the basis for the Wes Anderson film, The Grand Budapest Hotel.

  • (Freud, Sigmund.) Sternberger, Marcel

    Portrait of Sigmund Freud. London, 1938, printed 2017

    Sternberger and Freud had known each other for years before they fled Europe with the rise of Nazism. Though Freud was terminally ill and at first hesitant about receiving visitors in 1938, the neurologist and founder of psychoanalysis said it “makes me feel good to see old-familiar faces again” when Sternberger arrived. This is said to have been Freud’s last portrait session before his death in 1939.

    Portrait of George Bernard Shaw examining stamps. London, 1938, printed 2017

    In this portrait Shaw examines the stamps which Sternberger had designed for the Belgian Royal Family, featuring the Royal children. Shaw was a philatelist, and the offer of the stamps was part of Sternberger’s method to gain access to Shaw.

  • (Nehru, Jawaharlal.) Sternberger, Marcel

    Portrait of Prime Minister of India Jawaharlal Nehru. New York, 1949, printed 2017

    Sternberger presents a careful composition in this portrait of Jawaharlal Nehru. The crisp white Khaddar cap and dark shadows offset each other. This photograph was used as Nehru’s official government portrait in India and could be found in every school, government office, and embassy worldwide. It continues to provide the cover for Nehru’s seminal Glimpses of World History, a collection of letters about the history of humankind written from prison.

  • (Einstein, Albert.) Sternberger, Marcel

    Portrait of Albert Einstein. Princeton, New Jersey, 1950, printed 2017

    In this portrait Sternberger shows Einstein dressed informally. Einstein was keenly aware of his public image, and often attempted to show a cheerful visage. The common backgrounds of the two men helped the photographer to put Einstein in a relaxed state and to capture him in a more vulnerable pose.
