Description


Scarce vintage 4 x 5.75 silver gelatin portrait of Einstein by German press photographer John Graudenz, affixed to the original studio mount, which is signed and inscribed in German in fountain pen, "[To Youra] Guller, the wonderful performer, in gratitude, Albert Einstein, 1928." The mount is also signed by Graudenz. Double-matted to an overall size of 11 x 15.75. In very good to fine condition, with a few spots of foxing to the mount, a crack to the lower right corner of the mount, and a surface abrasion to the recipient's first name.

Youra Guller, born Rose Georgette Fuller, (1895-1980) was a French classical pianist who counted Einstein amongst her many prominent chamber music partners. According to Guller, the theoretical physicist was obsessed with intonation. An exceptional portrait boasting a beautiful full signature.
