Fania Marinoff

February 1910
Carl Van Vechten Papers

Working on both stage and screen throughout the 1910s, Fania Marinoff developed a reputation as a gifted actress who could perform popular comic roles as well as more challenging classical and experimental parts. Her most celebrated performance was as Ariel in The Tempest in 1916, in which the New York Times found her "bewitching." Marinoff was still quite young when she retired from acting. She and her husband remained central figures in several arts communities, serving as a point of connection between many of the period’s most important artists and thinkers, those from Harlem and Greenwich Village, New York and Europe.
