Description


Scarce vintage matte-finish 7.75 x 10 photo of Eugene O'Neill by the Ben Pinchot photography studio of Manhattan, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, "For Fania, The eyes have it, what? Gene, with much love, Tao House, July 1941.” In fine condition, with light overall silvering. The recipient, Fania Marinoff, was a Russian-born American stage and screen actress married to Carl Van Vechten, an American writer and artistic photographer who was a patron of the Harlem Renaissance and the literary executor of Gertrude Stein. O'Neill remains exceedingly rare in signed photographs, with this example all the more desirable given its recipient and the significant date—some four months earlier, O'Neill finished revising the final version of his manuscript for Long Day's Journey into Night, the scribe's magnum opus and a four-act play widely considered one of the finest American plays of the 20th century.
