TOSCANINI, ARTURO (1867-1957) Italian conductor. Original quarto [8 x 10 ½ inches] pencil sketch accomplished by Francis Perachino, who was an accomplished artist who had the ability to capture people’s personalities. Boldly Signed, ”Arturo Toscanini” in pencil, under his profile. Drawn on the verso of a cardboard menu. Very fine condition. This image is far more engaging than the usual mass produced publicity photograph normally found in the market. A choice item for display.
