    Description

    Enrico Caruso Signed Self-Caricature Portrait. One page, 6.38" x 8.88" (sight), circa 1909, soft lead pencil on paper, signed, "Enrico Caruso / 1909". The world-famous Italian tenor achieved both commercial and artistic success over his 25 year career, including 290 commercially-released recordings and contracts with La Scala in Milan and the New York Metropolitan Opera. The left-facing profile caricature seen here was likely created in New York, where Caruso was living at the time. Some smudging due to the nature of the medium. Framed together with a photograph of the tenor and a biographical plate to an overall size of 23.5" x 25.88".

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
