Description

Scarce oversized signed portrait of President Chiang Kai-shek, sent to an American by the Chinese Embassy in 1953

Vintage matte-finish 8.75 x 10.75 photo of Chiang Kai-shek in uniform, affixed to its original 12 x 15 mount, boldly signed and inscribed on the mount in black ink by Chiang. Framed to an overall size of 13.5 x 16.5, with a transmittal letter from the Chinese Embassy, dated April 1, 1953, signed by Col. Fu-En I, to Hugh Hutchinson of Toledo, Ohio, in part: "I am sending you the autographed portrait of President Chiang which you requested. The Chinese characters on the upper right hand side of the picture stand for your name, transcribed into Chinese. On the left is the name of the President, the date and his personal seal." In very good to fine condition, with scattered light foxing to the mount, and a crease to the background to the left of Chiang's image. Scarce in signed photographs of this size, this is a superb example improved by the rarely seen accompanying transmittal letter.
