FRANZ LEHÁR
B/w photo of Lehár in a suit-and-tie and sitting at a rolltop table composing a score, signed in Bad Ischl, Austria in 1930. With a note to "the most hardworking agent of the Karezag publishing house". Lehár died in Bad Ischl in 1948.

With autograph note in German, translated: "Mr. Herz the most hardworking agent of the Karezag publishing house heartfelt [illegible]". Lehár died in Bad Ischl, Austria in 1948. Hungarian violinist and composer Lehár (1870-1948, born in Komárom, Hungaria, now Komárno, Slovakia) was a major figure in the revival of Viennese light opera at the beginning of the 20th century. His work The Merry Widow (1905), popularized operetta in the U.S. and also became Hitler's favorite stage work. He composed several marches as a military bandmaster before and during World War I. During the 1920s, Lehár incorporated new styles of popular music, including American blues, into his compositions, and began composing film scores. The composer, despite having a Jewish wife, remained in Vienna during WWII, avoiding politics. Photograph is lightly toned. Signature is faint but legible. Image is scratched and scuffed. Top, left and bottom edges are chipped. Card is lightened along edges by mounting. Otherwise in fine condition.
