RR Autograph Auction Maryla Jonas

Polish pianist (1911-1959) whose career was put on hold when Germany invaded Poland in 1939. After refusing an offer to move to Berlin, she was arrested by the Gestapo until an officer who had heard her perform managed to secure her release. She escaped to Brazil under false papers, and resumed her pianistic career at Carnegie Hall in 1946. Vintage glossy 10 x 8 photo, signed and inscribed in blue ballpoint “To J. Willis Sayre with my best wishes, Maryla Jonas, 1948.” In very good condition, with some rippling and crazing to the emulsion and a spot on the right side, scattered light marks and creasing, some irregular adhesion to inscription and signature, light soiling in the lower border, and scattered spotting. RRAuction COA.
