LIBERACE

Vintage 8×10 glossy black and white full-length publicity portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in black marker, “To Elva,/from/Liberace/love/June 9/1955,” and adding a sketch of a piano.  Near fine condition, with scattered dings and handling bends, the most noticeable of which are in the borders when the photograph is viewed head on.  The virtuosic pianist and entertainer combined classical music with schlock to create box office gold during a lengthy career that was ended by his death from AIDS in 1987.
