Rachmaninoff, Sergei (1873-1943)

Postcard Photograph signed

 "S. Rachmaninoff". To "Mr. Fernand Gillet". 5.5" h x 3.5" w. Image fine; some silvering along edges. Signature and inscription on dark background so best viewed when held to the light.
A profile image of Rachmaninoff by George Faitzer (with photographer's stamp on verso). Given the foregrounded position of the composer's right arm, he is likely seated at the piano. Rachmaninoff has inscribed the photograph to Fernand Gillet, the principal oboist of the Boston Symphony Orchestra from 1925 to 1946.
