The typed text includes a space for an autograph by each brother, but they have ignored those lines, signing autograph notes instead.The more famous Liberace has written, in full: "I am pleased and very honored with your Poetrait - Much luch and every Success to You". Beneath his signature, he has drawn a candelabra atop a piano. George Liberace writes in full: "Great, Jimmie, Thanks a lot! Musically Yours". A piano prodigy who was performing with symphony orchestras in his teens, Wladziu Valentino Liberace, born in Milwaukee to Italian parents, went by Walter and was called Lee by close friends, but was known to the public simply as LIBERACE (1919-1987). Liberace disappointed the critics but delighted the public by channeling his talent into popular and novelty songs and on showmanship. With flamboyant costumes and campy performances, Liberace became in the staid 1950s the world's highest paid pianist and star of his own Emmy-winning TV show. Liberace left behind six gold albums, two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and a museum and foundation, which fund scholarship grants in the arts. GEORGE LIBERACE (1911-1983) was a talented violinist who often conducted orchestras accompanying his more famous brother. He founded a small music company and served intermittently as Liberace's manager. Toned and slightly frayed at edges. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
