PIOTR TCHAIKOVSKY - COMPOSER

Original 5” x 7” Imperial Theatre/Mariinsky Theatre photography studio photograph of the composer, December 9, 1892.  The photograph bears a hot emboss blind stamp stating “copies prohibited” in Cyrillic.

 

The late photograph of the composer is close to pristine.  We have been able to identify the date and year of this image through the leading reference on Tchaikovsky photographs and iconography, Tchaikovsky, 1840-1893, Musyka Press, Moscow, 1990; edited by L. Sidelnikov, p. 210.

 

Exquisite and rare, especially in this condition.
