HERMAN BING (2)

Vintage 8×10 glossy black and white Columbia Pictures chest-up studio portrait, boldly signed in black fountain pen, “Ah! La France!/C’est la culture!/The home of/literature and/the theatre!/Au revoir!/Herman Bing/Hollywood/ 7/7/37.”  Very good condition, with a mild but lengthy and slightly noticeable diagonal bend in the background along the bottom left side; and a substantial area of surface paper loss in the bottom border, also affecting a portion of the bottom of the image, visibly detracting from overall appearance.  Scarce in 8×10 format.
