Autograph note on photograph signed: "To/Conner/A real artist/if there ever was one/Sincerely/Nick Lucas". Sepia, 8x10. Nick Lucas (1897-1982) was an American jazz guitarist, singer and musician, better known to the world as "The Grandfather of the Jazz Guitar." With the peak of his career lasting from the mid 1920's through the 1930's, Lucas is known for his hits "Painting the Clouds with Sunshine" and "Tiptoe Through the Tulips"--both of which he performed in the musical Gold Diggers of Broadway. A talented singer, he was also the bandleader of The Crooning Troubadours from 1930 to 1931. Lucas's unique jazz guitar style was prompted by Gibson Guitars who were the first to construct his custom deep bodied guitar--a customization dubbed "The Nick Lucas Special". After 1932, Lucas continued to perform in night clubs and jazz lounges, sharing the stage with some of the greatest names in jazz, including Duke Ellington and Jimmie Noone. Corners creased. Lightly toned. Signature lightly smudged, but legible. Otherwise, fine condition.
