FEODOR CHALIAPIN
7x9 photo signed in London in 1931
Photograph signed: "F. Chaliapin/1931/London". B/w, 6¾x9. Faint ink note in center (unknown hand). Feodor Chaliapin (1873-1938) was an acclaimed Russian operatic bass singer who lived as an émigré from 1921 (while insisting that he was not anti-Soviet). His signature character was Boris Gudunov. First heard on stage in Russia in 1894, he made a spectacular European debut at La Scala in 1901. While making Paris his home, he was a regular at New York's Metropolitan Opera for 8 years (1921-1929). Known for his naturalistic acting, Chaliapin starred in English, French and German versions of The Adventures of Don Quixote, filmed separately for each language rather than subtitled (1933). He published a memoir in 1932. One of his sons, Feodor Chaliapin, Jr., became a successful Western character actor, while another, Boris, was an artist whose work appeared on the cover of Time magazine 414 times. Horizontal fold crease through eyes. Lightly worn at corners. Otherwise, fine condition.
