Exceptional uninscribed portrait from postwar Tokyo

Exceptional matte-finish 8 x 10 head-and-shoulders portrait of MacArthur in uniform, signed in fountain pen, “Douglas MacArthur, Tokyo—1949.” In fine condition. After WWII, MacArthur’s headquarters were located in Tokyo, where he helped Japan to rebuild itself following the devastation of war. Overseeing this redevelopment, MacArthur was effectively the interim leader of Japan from 1945 to 1948; after handing over power to the Japanese government in 1948, MacArthur remained in Japan until relieved by President Harry S. Truman in 1951. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
