Rare signed photograph of courageous anti-Stalin poet Anna Akhmatova
Important Russian poet (1889-1966) whose work was condemned and censored by Stalinist authorities; her emotionally restrained, short lyric poems include meditations on time and memory, and touch upon the difficulties of living and writing in the shadow of Stalinism. Incredibly rare vintage matte-finish 3.25 x 4.5 photo of the great Russian poetess, signed and inscribed on the reverse in blue ballpoint in Cyrillic, and dated at Moscow in 1962. In very fine condition. An incredibly scarce signed photo of the courageous poet, and the very first Akhmatova autograph we have offered.
