Sepia-toned British picture post card of mezzo-soprano Louis Kirby-Lunn sitting as a desk in a long dress, signed "Truly Yours"
Picture post card signed "Truly yours/Kirby Lunn". B/w sepia-toned, 3½x5½. Blank on verso. British postcard by Breitkopf & Härtel of London, printed in Germany. Captioned: "Mdme Kirby Lunn.". 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. Lightly toned, creased and bowed. Signature has low contrast but is legible. Otherwise in fine condition.
