WISH WYNNE AND ROBERT L. WHITTINGTON
The actress and music hall performer signs on a 3½x4½ original art piece, drawn but unsigned by Robert L. Whittington. A very rare piece!
Original art signed: "Very sincerely, Wish Wynne", 2¾x4½ affixed to a 3½x4½ card (2 surfaces). Wish Wynne (1882-1931) was an actress known for her character songs and sketches, performing popularly between 1910 and 1930. She began performing young, appearing on stage at the age of 12 in the Drury Lane pantomime of Christmas titled Dick Whittington. She amassed many performances to her name, including a 600 plus performance role as Janet Cannot in the drama The Great Adventure based on Arnold Bennet's novel Buried Alive. Wynne would eventually move on to music hall performances, where she would begin her successful work performing character songs and sketches. She would continue to perform in halls throughout her life until her very tragic death, which occurred shortly after collapsing during one of her shows. Wynne chose to perform in the desire to not disappoint her fans, even though she was suffering from a very serious year long illness due to a botched surgery the year before. She was brought to the hospital after collapsing, dying shortly after. Pen and ink drawing by Robert L. Whittington, who sketched celebrities from the Golden Age of Hollywood. The artist does not sign this piece. Mounting sheet is slightly creased at lower edge. Fine condition.
