Sleek and chic, Julian Wood Glass Jr. and his half-sister, Ernest “Sunny” Bradfield, pose in his New York City apartment. Artist David Payne included the screen and chair in the picture to symbolize his friend Julian’s collecting passion. Sunny Bradfield, who once worked as an actress, is presented as glamorous and self-assured. David Payne specialized in depicting the interiors of homes of the “café society,” the stylish social circle to which this brother and sister belonged.
