Portrait of O'Hanlan And Zambuni
Kathleen O’Hanlon and her spouse, Theadore Zambuni, were both originally from Samos, Greece. This famed dance duo were popular among the vaudevillian circuit. O’Hanlon was noted for her performance in Schubert’s 1921 production of “The Passing Show” in the famous Winter Garden Theater. Additional work with Schubert included his 1921 musical revue “The Century Revue”. Prior to this, O’Hanlon made appearances in the following musicals, the 1919 “Oh, What a Girl!” and the 1920 production of “The Midnight Rounders”. In this portrait O’Hanlon stands exposing her left side to the viewer with an ecstatic expression and languid stance. O’Hanlon is enveloped with one single piece of tasseled fabric that winds around the length of her body, leaving her upper torso and shoulders bare. O’Hanlon clasps the material to the upper portion of her chest with her right hand. Her left arm cradles a cylindrical object. O’Hanlon wears a luminous head scarf with whisps of hair exposed.
