Three-quarter length carte-de-visite photograph of the noted German soprano together with a cut signature laid down to yellow paper mount.

Three-quarter length carte-de-visite photograph of the noted German soprano together with a cut signature laid down to yellow paper mount.

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.

"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..."
