Photograph signed


SHAY, Art. Saul Bellow. Photograph signed. No place, circa 1980. Vintage gelatin silver photograph measures 11 by 14 inches. $1900.

Vintage large gelatin silver photograph of Nobel laureate Bellow, signed by him on the image, additionally signed by famed Chicago photographer Art Shay on the verso.

Considered "the greatest post-war novelist writing in English, a Nobel Laureate and winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award (three times), it was Saul Bellow who best articulated, for more than 50 years, the experience and moral condition of the late 20th century" (Telegraph). Bellow is seen here smiling and engaged in conversation, captured by noted Chicago photographer Art Shay, whose award-winning images for Life and Fortune focused on writers such as Bellow and Shay's longtime friend Nelson Algren. Vintage black-and-white gelatin silver photograph, signed in black ink by Bellow above his image; signed on the verso by Art Shay, with his studio stamp.

A fine signed photograph.
