EDITH EVANS. Vintage 3.5 x 5.5 1930s glossy black and white chest-up profile portrait, boldly signed with her name alone in black fountain pen. Very fine condition, with a portion of the signature penned against the busy fabric of her dress, readable with moderate contrast. Among the greatest British stage actresses of the 20th century, Dame Edith Evans made only occasional film appearances during her five decade career, but garnered Oscar nominations for her performances in Tom Jones (1963), The Chalk Garden (1964), and The Whisperers (1967).
