Marian Anderson [manuscript caption title]

[N.p. N.d., likely 1950s or 1960s]. Black-and-white photograph, 12.5 x 9.5 inches, mounted to tan backing board with manuscript title and photographer's credit in pencil at bottom. Minor surface wear to image, moderate foxing to board. Very good. Item #4619

A large-format and striking photograph of legendary African American contralto singer Marian Anderson. The image appears to capture Anderson in middle age, in the midst of talking with someone out of frame, wearing a simple dress and a fancy, feathered hat with a pendant pinned to the left side. The photograph was produced by "E. Marcus," who signs at bottom right, though we are unable to identify them. A wonderful display item, and an image we could not locate online.
