FINE CONDITION

PABLO CASALS AND ALFRED CORTOT

Original 5 x 7 matte reverse blind stamped Robert Cohen for Agip photo services photograph of the cellist, pianist and a photo bomber sharing a joke, likely Prades Festival 1957 where Cortot performed.

Casals, Cortot and Thibaud made up one of the leading piano trios of the 20th Century from 1906-1934. (Thibaud, the violinist was killed in an airplane crash in 1953) Old friends, Casals invited Cortot to perform at his Prades Festival in Spain in 1957. This image was likely taken at that time. Unfortunately the image is not dated. What makes this photograph unique, other than the fact that Cortot has told Casals something extremely funny, is the wide eyed photo bomber obviously smiling for the photograph in the background.

A charming original photograph of two of the greats of the 20th Century!
