Magnificent uninscribed portrait from the time of Symphony No. 6
Description  

Esteemed Russian composer (1840–1893) whose colorful, dramatic, and expressive works represent the epitome of the Russian Romantic tradition and take a place among the most beloved staples of the concert repertory. Original 4.25 x 6.5 cabinet bust portrait, signed at the bottom of the image in black ink, “P. Tchaikovsky, 7 Juin 1893.” Published by a Russian studio. In fine condition, with scattered surface scuffing, erased notation in lower border, and mounting remnants to reverse. This dates to Tchaikovsky’s final year, during the period in which he was working on his Symphony No. 6. He led the premiere on October 28, 1893, just nine days before his sudden death at the age of 53. Signed photos of the renowned composer are fantastically rare, and this is the first uninscribed example we have encountered. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
