Description: Original portrait photograph of Estrellita Karsh, 10 x 8 inches, black and white, Ottawa, no date, circa 1970. Signed "Estrellita Karsh by Yousuf Karsh" on verso with the photographer's copyright and credit line back stamp. Karsh took this portrait of his wife on her 40th birthday. He would snap her on a whim or when testing a lens -- a contrast to his formal sessions with subjects, which were precisely lit and could go on for hours. This image is currently part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the Armenian Library and Museum of America in Watertown. Fine condition.
Comments: One of the greatest and most successful portrait photographers of all time.Signed: Y
