"Few 20th-century composers enjoyed international influence and importance equal to that of Stravinsky. This influence exists in the materials of his music and in his rigorous search for an individual sound… For many years he was, with Schoenberg, one of the two unofficial poles of Western music" (ANB). The postcard portrait is dated September 1948, and is attractively matted and framed with a page of music from Stravinsky's Four Etudes.
An attractive inscribed and signed framed piece in fine condition.
