Remarkable 1888 oversized formal portrait

Italian composer (1813–1901) who was one of the most influential figures in the history of opera. Superb 6.75 x 9.75 imperial cabinet photo of Verdi wearing a classic hat in a fine head-and-shoulders pose, signed in black ink, “G. Verdi, Montecatini, 1 Agosto 1898.” Published by P. Tempestini of Montecatini. In very good condition, with overall surface spotting and a ding to the top of the mount. Verdi frequented Montecatini throughout the last twenty years of his life, an area of Italy known for its spa and a destination for many of his contemporaries, such as Mascagni and Leoncavallo. At this point, he had finished writing his last work, Quattro pezzi sacri, which had been performed in Paris for the first time in April. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
