SAINT-SAËNS ORIGINAL LIFETIME PORTRAIT

1915. Sketch size: 4.25" h x 3.5" w. Total size in mat: 11.75" h x 10" w. Excellent condition.
A excellent lifetime portrait of the French composer in red crayon, signed only EB 1915.

Although we have not been able to identify the artist with certainty, it is possible that the initials are those of French author Émile Baumann, a longtime and close friend of Saint-Saëns who penned two books on the composer's music (the first of which was the first of the author's career).
