Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The collection consists of performing artist and other celebrity portraits compiled from numerous donations during the first 60 years of the Archive of Recorded Sound (1958-2018). The majority of photographs in this collection were removed from the ARS Subject File Collection (ARS-0201). These include autographed images, publicity stills, postcards, lithographs, and reprints dating from the mid-nineteeth century through the 2000s. Notable examples within the collection include portraits from the Ravinia Festival's golden age of opera (1919-1931), 20th century conductors such as Arturo Toscanini and Pierre Monteux, and rare 19th century portraits of opera stars.
