The Roaring Lion: An original studio print of Yousef Karsh's famous 1941 photograph of Prime Minister Winston S. Churchill, signed by Karsh and housed in the original Karsh Studio folder
Yousuf Karsh, Ottawa, Canada, 1941. This is an original studio print of Yousuf Karsh’s wartime "Roaring Lion" photograph of Winston Churchill – one of the twentieth century’s most famous photographs by one of the world’s most famous portrait photographers. This copy is a marvelous example – a sizable print magnificently preserved within the original Karsh studio folder in which it was issued.This 7.5 x 9.375 inch (19.1 x 23.8 cm) photograph was printed by Karsh’s studio on bright, lustrous paper and mounted by the studio on heavy card stock measuring 10.375 x 13.375 inches (26.4 x 34 cm) and stamped by Karsh’s studio on the verso. A plate mark impressed by the studio surrounding the image gives the image further depth. Karsh signed in two lines in white on the lower right margin of the photo " Y Karsh | Ottawa."Condition of both the card stock and the photograph are superb, truly fine and certainly the best we have seen, with no reportable scratches, wear, or soiling. This doubtless owes to the photograph’s protection within the original Karsh studios folder in which it was issued – the first such folder we have ever encountered. The large, 10.625 x 13.625 inch (27 x 34.6 cm) folder is of heavy, tan and grey cardstock. On the front cover, printed in grey on the left, is "KARSH Portraitist" while on the right is the Ottawa Coat of arms below the words "BY APPOINTMENT". "Ottawa" is typed at the lower right of the front cover. Somewhat amusingly given all the declamatory Canadianness of the front cover, "MADE IN U.S.A." is printed discreetly at the bottom of the rear cover. Wi … [Click Below for Full Description]
