Rare pearl-finish 5.5 x 7.5 photo of sculptor Leon Leyritz’s Art Deco bust of Ravel, signed and inscribed in fountain pen to a flautist in the Cleveland Orchestra, “To Laurent Torno, sincerely, Maurice Ravel.” A pencil notation on the reverse of the mat reads, “1928, Ravel conducted Cleveland Symphony while I was a member, acted as his interpreter.” Matted to an overall size of 10 x 12. In fine condition. Ravel considered the Leyritz bust his best portrait, and Torno was later first flute with the St. Louis Symphony for several years—an excellent musical association. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
