VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINT OF ETHEL WATERS, SIGNED BY HER

WATERS, Ethel. Photograph signed. No place, circa 1945. Vintage photographic print, measuring 3-1/2 by 5-1/2 inches, signed on the recto. $350.

Lovely vintage bust-length photographic print of African-American singer and actress Ethel Waters, signed by her.

"Ethel Waters overcame an early life of difficulty to become one of the best-known entertainers of her time. Her unique singing style broke through racial barriers and was embraced by a broad audience, black and white alike. In stage and film, she used her natural acting talent to transcend musical and 'Mammy' roles and become an acknowledged dramatic actress, well-known for her roles on the stage, in movies and in popular television series" (Black History Now). This bust-length photograph captures an older Ethel Waters in three-quarter profile. She is shown with her hair up, wearing an evening gown and bold jewelry.

Staple mark to top margin. Signature bold. Very nearly fine condition.
