Firenze: n.d. Hand-coloured engraving of the exterior of the Teatro San Carlo. 235 x 305 mm. A 20th century re-impression of the 19th century original, with "Correction du dessin et imprimé par l'Editrice PV 200" printed to corners just below image. Matted, framed, and glazed.
From the collection of Marilyn Horne (b. 1934).
A distinguished American mezzo-soprano, "Horne had a voice of extraordinary range, rich and tangy in timbre, with a stentorian chest register and an exciting top... In concert she once achieved the feat of singing in a single programme Rossini arias and Brünnhilde’s Immolation Scene, proof of her exceptional versatility. Throughout her lengthy career she was an admired recitalist, singing lieder, mélodies, Spanish and American songs with equal aplomb." Alan Blyth in Grove Music Online. Item #30299
