Stravinsky, Igor (1882-1971) Russian Composer. Black and white, matte finish Photograph Signed "Igor Stravinsky," 10 in. x 8 in, n.d., n.p. Stravinsky pores over the sheet music for the ballet Orpheus, which he wrote in 1947. Boldly signed in blue ink. Some waviness at lower edge; otherwise, Very Fine. A rare photo, probably unpublished.

Stravinsky studied composition under Rimsky-Korsakov (1903-1906). He composed ballets for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes from 1909-1929, including L'Oiseau de feu, Petrouchka, and Le Sacré du Printemps. He lived in France from 1920-39, where he changed from his earlier Russian style to a Neoclassical idiom. He moved to the U.S. in 1939 and was naturalized in 1945. He produced fully serial compositions, including choral works, and orchestral works, and also composed chamber music, songs, and piano pieces. Stravinsky was one of the greatest composers of the 20th century.
