Description

Enrico Caruso (1873-1921) Original Pen & Ink Self-Caricature Signed, "Enrico Caruso, Loutra, 1905, 5 x 7.5, museum-quality matted and framed to an overall size 8 x 11, by the Italian operatic tenor who sang to great acclaim at the major opera houses of Europe and the Americas, appearing in a wide variety of roles from the Italian and French repertoires that ranged from the lyric to the dramatic. One of the first major singing talents to be commercially recorded, Caruso made approximately 260 commercially released recordings from 1902 to 1920, which made him an international popular entertainment star. This wonderfully executed right profile self-caricature was obviously done for a fan in Loutra, Greece in 1905, while on vacation from his recent Covent Garden, London engagement. In fine condition, with light ink rub and center crease.
