Autographed 6.25” x 9” leaf from legendary Photographer Alfred Eisenstadt’s personal album signed by the legendary Conductor, Evangelist Billy Graham and violinist Isaac Stern.  With a vintage photograph of Stoki shipboard, 1916.

Stokwski writes, Para Alfred Eisenstaedt bravo! Leopold Stokowski.  Graham writes, To Alfred Eisenstaedt An exacting and courteous Artist, God Bless, Billy Graham, Psalm 16:11.  Sterns writes on the verso, To Alfred Eisenstaedt, Whose taste & sensitivity makes a camera a poetic—even a musical instrument—Isaac Stern April 13 - 1960.

An eclectic album leaf combining music and religion!  Eisenstaedt shot Leopold Stokowski when he returned to conduct the Philadelphia Orchestra in February, 1960, the first time since he left the organization in 1941.  He shot Billy Graham for a Life Magazine story entitled, “The National Purpose” which ran on June 6, 1960.  He shot Isaac Stern for an article which ran on April 25, 1960 regarding saving Carnegie Hall and the tenants of the Hall featuring Stern who almost single handedly led the charge for the preservation.

Quite a spectacular album leaf with wonderful association.

LEOPOLD STOKOWSKI - CONDUCTOR
