Item #39656 Postcard photograph signed "Milhaud" Darius MILHAUD.

Postcard photograph signed "Milhaud"

The composer is depicted seated at a desk in a pensive pose, his pen poised over a musical manuscript. With printed identification and "Photo Lipnitzki" printed to blank lower margin. With Milhaud's autograph signature to lower outer corner.

A distinguished French composer, Milhaud "was associated with the avant garde of the 1920s, whose abundant production reflects all musical genres. A pioneer in the use of percussion, polytonality, jazz and aleatory techniques, his music allies lyricism with often complex harmonies. Though his sources of inspiration were many and varied, his music has compelling stylistic unity." Jeremy Drake in Grove Music Online

Boris Lipnitzki (1887-1971), born in what is now Ukraine, was a noted French photographer of the arts including music and ballet.
