The great Italian tenor is shown in an attractive formal seated pose in an image by Varischi, Artico & Co. of Milan.
Tamagno had a highly successful international career and sang Otello in the first performance of Verdi's opera. He is also one of the earliest Italian tenors of note to have recorded extensively.
