Sessions, Roger

Photograph

, signed "Roger Huntington Sessions". To "the Blochs with my love and very best wishes". 9.5" h x 6.75" w, total measurement in mat, 15" h x 12" w. A trifle silvered and a tiny chip off the lower left corner (not visible in mat), but in beautiful, crisp condition.
A stunning and very formal sepia-toned portrait of the American composer Roger Sessions in his youth.
This rare and historic photograph is inscribed to the composer Ernest Bloch and his daughter, the lutenist Susanne Bloch. Sessions studied composition privately in New York with Bloch and later became Bloch's assistant at the Cleveland Institute of Music in the 1920s.
