Eminent Russian composer (1844-1908) best known for such brilliantly orchestrated works as Scheherazade and for operatic staples like Sadko, The Tale of Tsar Saltan, and The Golden Cockerel. Scarce 4.25 x 6.5 cabinet portrait of Rimsky-Korsakov in a dignified bust-length pose circa 1895, signed and inscribed in Cyrillic in black ink (partly translated), "Vlasova for memory, N. R. Korsakov.” Published by the acclaimed Elena Mrozovskaya photography studio of St. Petersburg. In very good condition, with spotting and staining to the image, and surface loss to the upper left where, apparently, an inscription was removed and then re-added in another hand.
