KIRSTEN FLAGSTAD. Classic vintage 8×10 glossy black and white full-length portrait of the towering Wagnerian soprano as Isolde, matted in purple silk with a 1940 Metropolitan Opera program page for Tristan und Isolde, and handsomely framed in shades of brown and gold, to an overall size of 22.25×16.25. The photograph is inscribed in purple fountain pen, “Eddie Ponsa/with best wishes/Yours sincerely/Kirsten Flagstad.” Very fine condition, with generally good contrast to the writing, which is penned across her gown at the lower portion of the image.
