Sculptor Gets Pose in Half-Minute (Jun, 1931)
Sculptor Gets Pose in Half-Minute
THOSE who wish to have their classic profiles excavated from the ruins a thousand years from now, may now secure a sculptured portrait of themselves without posing for hours on end. Only thirty seconds of sitting are now necessary to enable Artist William Fred Engleman to turn out a portrait bust in clay, marble or bronze.
Engleman, who combines science with his art, has invented a special camera which takes five hundred pictures of the model in thirty seconds. The photos are taken from such angles that every detail of the contour of the face and head are revealed.
