Anderson, Marian. (1897-1993)

Signed Photograph

Attractive image of the great African American contralto with her hands clasped at her side. 8 x 10 inch halftone image within a complete concert program, signed in blue ink across the image. Fine condition.


Anderson was a great favorite of Toscanini and, in 1955, broke the color barrier by becoming the first African-American to perform at the Metropolitan Opera. She remains a legendary figure in the history of opera, remembered for, among other highlights, her Lincoln Memorial concert and her performances at the inaugurations of both Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy.
