MARIAN ANDERSON Vintage sepia of Marian Anderson Photograph signed: "Marian Anderson/11-11-40". Sepia, 6¼x8. Signed during a transcontinental and European concert tour. Anderson had previously performed in Vienna, Paris and Berlin between 1930 and 1935. Marian Anderson (1897-1993), a contralto who sang both operas and spirituals, began her concert career in 1924 and debuted with the Philadelphia Philharmonic in 1925. In 1939, the Daughters of the American Revolution refused to allow Anderson, a Black American, to perform in Washington, D.C.'s Constitution Hall. In response, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt resigned from the D.A.R. and arranged for a concert at the Lincoln Memorial. Anderson, the first Black performer to debut with New York's Metropolitan Opera (1955), later became a permanent member of the company. The late conductor Arturo Toscanini commented of Anderson, "A voice like hers comes once in a century." In 2005, she was honored on a 37-cent postage stamp. Defects from original negative have reproduced on print. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 16x22¾.
