Thibaud, Jacques (1880-1953)
Matted Ensemble With Photograph And Musical Palindrome Signed "Jacques Thibaud". Total size in mat: 10.5" h x 16.75" w. In good condition. Quotation with a few light creases. Ink smudged ("q" of signature, place, date, and "Presto"), but likely original.
The violinist Jacques Thibaud has penned eight bars from a "Presto," ingeniously written as a musical palindrome, to be read the same way, either right side up or upside down. He has also added a smaller two bar quote to the top left.
