LOUISE KIRBY-LUNN
Sepia-toned cabinet card by Elliott & Fry of mezzo-soprano Louise Kirby-Lunn in a long white dress, signed in 1904.
Inscribed photograph signed "[illegible]/Kirby Lunn Pearson/Mar 17. 1904". B/w sepia-toned, 4x5¾ photo mounted on 4¼x6¾ card with rounded corners.. Cabinet card-style photo by Elliott & Fry of London. Kirby-Lunn (1873-1930) was a British mezzo-soprano and one of the leading British singers between 1900 and 1920. Interestingly, Kirby-Lunn, who made her debut during the first season of the Promenade Concerts in 1895, had thought of retiring after her marriage in 1899, before she came to real prominence. But she persevered, and it paid off. She appeared regularly at Covent Garden between 1901 and 1914 and at the Metropolitan Opera between 1902 and 1908, and sung in numerous oratorios and operas. Kirby-Lunn was especially famous for her interpretations of Richard Wagner's opera. Lightlytoned, silvered and bowed. Pen dribbled while writing signature, which is smeared but legible. Lightly soiled and worn at edges and corners. Tape residue at edges and on verso. Otherwise in fine condition.
