JOHN RAITT and ETHEL MERMAN Original portrait of Merman, drawn by John Raitt, signed by both! Original Art signed: "Best Wishes/Ethel Merman", 5½x8½. Pencil drawing also signed by the artist "J. Raitt". Possessing one of the richest, most powerful voices in the history of theater, Ethel Merman (1908-1984), the "First Lady" of American musical comedy strutted her way across the stage during five decades of show-business success, beginning with her breakout in 1930's Girl Crazy and continuing on to memorable parts in Anything Goes, Annie Get Your Gun and Gypsy. "I Got Rhythm" from Girl Crazy and "There's No Business Like Show Business" from Annie Get Your Gun became her trademark songs. While in college in the 1930s, JOHN RAITT began drawing portraits of famous people. He sent his artwork to each subject with a request that it be autographed and returned to him. Two horizontal folds. Tape affixed at corners. Otherwise, fine condition.
