ANDREW W. MELLON
Distinguished Bachrach photograph, inscribed and signed by Mellon
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Proctor L. Daugherty/With best wishes/A. W. Mellon". Vignetted, b/w with sepia hue, 9x12 overall, image 4½x8 (one surface). Photograph by Bachrach. Mellon was the Secretary of the Treasury (1921-1932) to three Presidents (Harding, Coolidge and Hoover). He was also a successful banker and co-founder of Alcoa, Gulf Oil and U.S. Steel. A prominent art collector, he donated $15 million to build the National Art Gallery in Washington, DC, which opened in 1941. It started with housing Mellon's art collection, which was donated to the government upon his death in 1937. At the time, it was valued at $25 million. The picture was taken by Louis Fabian Bachrach, the most famous of the now 5-generation family of photographers and the one who built the family business into a national enterprise. Light vertical surface crease at upper right blank background. Fine condition.
