    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".

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
