Swiss soprano LISA DELLA CASA(1919-2012) was known for her range, for her natural style, and - unlike many divas - for her lack of egotism. Della Casa, who made her opera debut in Madama Butterfly (1940), was famed for her performances of the works of Mozart and of Richard Strauss. Artist DOROTHY AHRENS specialized in drawing musicians, popular as well as operatic ones, in the 1940s and 1950s, and asked the stars to autograph these. Fine condition.
