C. 1936 Yousuf Karsh Signed Portrait Photo of Ruth Draper Vintage Original

This is an original vintage c. 1936 theatrical portrait photo of dramatic actress Ruth Parker hand signed in ink by Yousuf Karsh. I believe this is a gelatin silver print on heavy paper measuring about 9-3/4 x 7-1/8 or about 25.4 cm x 17.8 cm. The photo is hand signed by Karsh in ink in the lower right hand corner. The name Ruth Draper is written in pencil on the verso. This photo isnt dated but is a vintage original produced around the mid to late 1930s. The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Chicago Art Institute and the National Gallery of Canada all have a portrait Karsh took of Draper in 1936 which differs from this image but was probably taken around the same time period. Overall condition is very good. If you have questions about how to pay for this item please let me know.
