Johannes Brahms signed carte-de-visite photo

07 Nov

Famed German composer (1833–1897) whose works in the classical spirit, written in the midst of the Romantic era, take a place among the most enduring music of the 19th century. Rare 2.5 x 4 carte-de-visite photo of Brahms by Fritz Luckhardt of Vienna, vertically inscribed in German on the reverse and signed in black ink, “J. Brahms, Wien, Mai 86.” In fine condition, with some light surface loss to edges on both the front and reverse. A crystal-clear image, boldly signed and inscribed shortly before writing his ‘Violin Sonata No. 2.’ Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
