Impeccable early portrait

Extremely gorgeous vintage pearl-finish 8 x 10 head-and-shoulders portrait of a young Hepburn, signed in the lower right in fountain pen. Reverse bears the ink stamp of photographer Harry C. Beitt. In fine condition, with a couple unobtrusive surface creases and slight brushing to signature. A stunning and desirable piece, as Hepburn famously refused to sign any type of photo except for friends and family. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
