BEATRIX LEHMANN

Striking vintage 1930s 3.5 x 5.5 matte finish black and white bust profile portrait, boldly signed in black fountain pen, “With best wishes/from/Beatrix Lehmann.” Fine condition, with thin bands of very faint silvering around the edges, completely invisible when the photograph is viewed head on. The actress devoted most of her early career to the classical stage in Britain, later appearing more frequently in films and television, including roles in The Spy Who Came In From the Cold> (1965), A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (1966) and “Doctor Who” (1978).
