RALPH RICHARDSON (2)

Censorious-looking vintage 9.5 x 11.3 matte finish half-length black and white portrait from Anna Karenina (1948), signed in black fountain pen.  Fine condition, with mounting remnants on the reverse side; a diagonal bend to the bottom right corner tip; and his signature penned against the dark fabric of his jacket, but reasonably distinct on the actual photograph, although somewhat difficult to discern in the accompanying scan.  An imposing image of one of Britain’s best.
