Vintage color glossy 5.25 x 7.25 candid photo of Einstein surrounded by bookcases in what appears to be his study, signed in the lower border in fountain pen, “A. Einstein ’50.” The image and still-legible signature are both somewhat faded, otherwise fine condition. In 1950, Einstein published an article in Scientific American entitled ‘On the Generalized Theory of Gravitation,’ describing his pursuit of a ‘unified field theory’—a field of study that remains active today. An outstanding photo that portrays Einstein in an intellectual setting. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
