660 x 508 mm. Rolled.

From the collection of the distinguished American mezzo-soprano Marilyn Horne (b. 1934).
"Rethberg’s beautiful lirico spinto soprano was perfectly equalized between the registers, and a combination of natural musicianship and sound training enabled her to maintain an unusually even legato in the most difficult passages. Rethberg made a large number of recordings, many of which reveal her rare beauty of tone and purity of style." Desmond Shawe-Taylor in Grove Music Online.
