JUAN PERÓNBlack and white photograph of the Argentine President in formal attire, signed on the 12x16 mount Large Photograph Mount inscribed and signed: "To my friend Guillermo Franissevich with great affection/ and in memory of common patriotic anxieties/ Buenos Aires, 2 March 1950/ Juan Perón" in Spanish as President of Argentina. B/w, 12½x16½ overall, image 8½x11¼ (three surfaces). JuanD. Perón (1895-1974) was part of a military junta, which seized power in 1943 and made him Secretary of Labor and Social Welfare. Promoted to Vice President and Minister of War in 1944 but purged by suspicious fellow officers in 1945, Perón was released after massive protests by the labor unions whose support he had cultivated. Perón was elected President in 1946, serving until overthrown in a military coup (1956). Peron ruled with authoritarian methods, but his program of nationalism and economic justice appealed to many of his countrymen. While Perón lived in exile in Spain, his Peronista movement remained a powerful force in Argentine politics. He once again served as President from 1973 until his death. His first wife, Maria Eva Duarte (1919-1952), affectionately called Evita, helped him as de facto Minister of Health and Labor, acquiring a mass following of her own. Infamously,Peron's government kept Nazi war criminals safe after WWII, protecting them from international leaders who wanted to try them for their horrific crimes. Mount is lightly soiled and creased with a 1¼-inch tear at mid-right blank margin (all intact), upper left blank corner torn off. Photo has a ¼-inch horizontal crease left of his face. Photo is tipped to mount. Otherwise, fine condition.
