DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER Fine association I.S.P. 8" x 9 1/2" b/w, on original mat measuring 10 1/2" x 13 1/2", inscribed at bottom mat to American operatic soprano Rose Bampton. In full: "For Rose Bampton with appreciation of her artistry and with all best wishes Dwight D. Eisenhower". Bampton (1907 - 2007), debuted in La Giocanda at the Met in 1932, and is acclaimed for her roles in Schoenberg and Stokowski compositions. Ike began his inscription in brown ink, and, as the pen failed, switched to black ink for his signature. Light damage to bottom margin, just touching last letters of signature, otherwise very good condition.
Estimate $ 250-350
