Brook, possibly Griffith Park, Los Angeles
Nude with drape.
The authenticity of other Jean Harlow nudes has been questioned but this photoshoot in drapery is definately the Platinum Bombshell on her way to become the reigning Hollywood glamour goddess of the 1930s (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7).
As a young starlet Harlow follows a similar path to many other movie actresses.
