Austrian-born ballerina and actress Tilly (Ottilie) Losch danced with the Vienna State Opera Ballet (1921-8), including in Max Reinhardt's 1927 Salzburg Festival production of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. She toured with Reinhardt's theatre and ballet ensemble to New York (1927-8), before founding her own company Les Ballets (1933). Losch's later career concentrated on film, and she appeared in Limelight (1936) directed by Herbert Wilcox, for whom Daniels made this publicity portrait.
