252 x 202 mm.

With an autograph inscription signed by both Horne and Hines. With "New Jersey Newsphotos" credit to verso.

From the collection of the distinguished American mezzo-soprano Marilyn Horne (b. 1934).

Hilfreich was private secretary and companion to the noted opera singer Maria Jeritza (1887-1982).

"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 #31498
