Three-quarter length carte-de-visite photograph of the noted German soprano together with a cut signature laid down to yellow paper mount
by TIETJENS, Therese 1831-1877
"Though ungainly in appearance, Tietjens was a magnificently dramatic artist, with a powerful but flexible voice that could overcome any technical difficulty. The authority of her stage presence and of her singing in such roles as Norma, Medea, Donna Anna, Lucrezia or Leonore (Fidelio) made her the true successor to Pasta, Malibran and Grisi..." Elizabeth Forbes in Grove Music Online.. From the studio of W. & D. Downey, London. Ca. 103 x 63 mm. Very slightly worn; signature ca. 30 x 74 mm., mount ca. 34 x 78 mm. (Inventory #: 24568)
