Massive portrait of the Rough Rider

Spectacular matte-finish 15.5 x 19.5 photo of Roosevelt in his Rough Riders cavalry uniform, affixed to its original 18 x 23.5 mount, signed and inscribed on the mount in bold black ink as president, “To Captain John Means Thompson 9th Regiment N.G.N.Y. With the best wishes of Theodore Roosevelt Sept. 7th 1907.” Archivally matted and framed with UV protective glass to an overall size of 28.5 x 34.5. In fine condition, with some professional touch-ups to black background and a few trivial spots to the mount. This amazing photograph of Roosevelt standing tall in his Rough Riders uniform is inscribed to a captain in another division that saw heavy action during the Spanish-American War. Signed as president with the affection of one soldier to another, this striking photo captures the heart of Roosevelt as ‘The Colonel’ and is arguably the finest we have encountered. Oversized. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
