RR Autograph Auctions Antonin Dvorak Signed Carte-de-Visite Photo

RR Autograph Auction Antonin DvorakEsteemed Czech composer (1841–1904) of orchestral and chamber music, best known for his Symphony No. 9, ‘From the New World.’ Distinguished original 2.5 x 4 carte-de-visite photo by H. Fiedler of Prague, inscribed on the reverse in fountain pen and signed “Antonin Dvorak,” and dated January 19, 1879. In fine condition, with some light foxing to background of image and the month enhanced in another hand due to missing ink. Dvorak was in the twilight of his life when he signed this image in 1897, the same year that his daughter married a former pupil of the composer, Josef Suk. A year earlier, he visited London for what was to be the final time to attend the premiere of his Cello Concerto in B minor. An absolutely amazing portrait signed by the great composer whose work was celebrated across the globe during his lifetime.
