Bust-length role portrait photograph of the soprano as Santuzza in Mascagni's Cavalleria rusticana. Signed in full
by PAMPANINI, Rosetta 1896-1973
"Pampanini's pure, natural voice was full of warmth and brilliance, with a strong, resonant top register; she was considered one of the world's leading Puccini sopranos between 1925 and 1940, partly because of the variety of colour and inflection she brought to the utterances of Mimì, Cio-Cio-San and Manon, partly because of the grace and simplicity of her bearing. She was also admired in Andrea Chénier, Iris and Tosca. After she retired in 1946 she taught singing in Milan; Amy Shuard and Victoria Elliott were among her pupils." Rodolfo Celletti in Grove Music Online.. Ca. 253 x 203 mm. Slightly worn; corners slightly creased; minor pencil annotation to verso. (Inventory #: 23908)
