Photograph of a woman gazing down to her right.
Louise Carbasse by Rudolph Buchner

Rudolph Buchner had a studio in Sydney and advertised as an ‘artist in portraiture’ who ‘produces portraits that possess Individuality, Character and much Charm’.

This is certainly apparent in this portrait of Louise Carbasse, a successful actress and vaudevillean who departed Australia in 1914 for Hollywood and stardom in silent films under the name ‘Louise Lovely’.
