Vintage glossy 8 x 10 studio portrait of Cline by Fabry Studios of Nashville, signed in fountain pen, "Your friend, Patsy Cline." In very good to fine condition, with two areas of horizontal crazing across the image, and emulsion loss to the corners from once being taped. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA. Walden S. Fabry was a studio portrait photographer working in Peoria, Illinois in the 1940s when country comedian Minnie Pearl persuaded him to move to Nashville. After establishing a new studio in downtown Nashville, Fabry became a favorite of country music stars, taking iconic images from the late 1940s through the 1960s. A gorgeous photo of the tragic country star taken by Fabry on June 27, 1955—less than a week later Cline made her network television debut on the short-lived television version of the Grand Ole Opry.
