Jazz guitarist and composer (1910-1953) who invented an entirely new style of jazz guitar technique, sometimes called 'hot' jazz guitar. Rare and fantastic vintage matte-finish 7 x 9.5 photo of Reinhardt sipping a drink with a cigarette in hand, boldly signed and inscribed in fountain pen, "14 Juillet 1942, A mon tres simpathique directeur, Django Reinhardt," adding a wonderful sketch of a guitar at the top. Stamped in the lower left and on the reverse with a Jan Renard photographer's stamp. In fine condition. A simply marvelous signed portrait, enhanced by Django's stylish sketch.
