ARTURO TOSCANINI(1867 - 1957) Italian conductor known for his dynamic interpretations of Beethoven, Verdi and Wagner. Fine vintage postcard S.P., 5 1/2" x 3 1/2" b/w, depicting the conductor in a bust-length profile view, with the same intense gaze he would use while coaxing and commanding his musicians. Boldly signed "Arturo Toscanini" in black ink on blank bottom edge and dated "London 4-Aug-30" over a portion of his suit, affecting contrast but still visible. Slight surface scrape at the collar of Toscanini's jacket, not affecting signature, else very good.
Estimate $ 500-600
