A Long, Narrow Portrait

This is a strangely proportioned old portrait, only four inches wide, but nine and a half long. The reflective quality is from photographic silver that's leaching out of the paper. From the twenties, would be my best guess, and early twenties at that. It came in a cardboard folder marked, "K.M.L. & ART Co. INC. GRAND RAPIDS MICH." She does look pretty arty, so the studio name fits. She looks like she eventually went to New York or Paris.
