Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $2,505.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Beautiful vintage glossy 9 x 11.5 portrait of Baker lounging on a tiger skin rug and wearing a gorgeous gown, by Studio Keyston Talbot, prominently signed and inscribed in fountain pen, "A Directeur Waltuch, en souvenir de Josephine Baker, 1932 Wien.” In fine condition. Already an established marquee draw at the Parisian cabaret music hall Folies Bergere, Baker's popularity had soared soared further with the 1931 release of 'J'ai deux amours,' the most successful song of her career. Baker is quite scarce in signed photos of this size, and this is a particularly appealing example.
