Studio Arax
Studio Arax of Paris produced exquisite work from the 1930s to the 1950s. The famous studio featured classic, athletic images of the handsomest young stars of Europe's movie screen and Olympic fields. One of the studio's easily identifiable logos and Paris address are usually printed in the lower right corner or border in the print, as well as stamped on the reverse.

This name print appeared in the negative of the actual image, usually in the lower-right corner of photographs through the 1950s.
This is one of several copyrights stamps, stamped in ink on the reverse of photographs through the 1950s. Earlier stamps often did not have the black border around the address.
