Ysaye, Eugene. (1858–1931)
Original Photograph with Violin
Striking doubleweight original period photograph of the great violinist, composer and conductor, shown holding his violin under his arm and looking down pensively. With some silvering, a few stray marks and slightly unevenly trimmed; overall in fine condition. 5.75 x 7.6 inches (14.6 x 19.3 cm.).
Carl Flesch called Ysaye "the most outstanding and individual violinist I have ever heard in my life," and he was the dedicatee of many major works from Debussy, Saint-Saens, Franck, Chausson and others.
