PHILIPPE HALSMAN, YOUNG FRANK SINATRA, 1944

Lot 0100

PHILIPPE HALSMAN, YOUNG FRANK SINATRA. This is the first of a group of some of Halsman's celebrated close portraits of celebrities. They were published in 1978 in an edition of 500, of which this is number 50. Each has a stamped embossed signature on the recto, and Halsman's stamp on the verso. They are matted and framed in 19 x 16- inch frames.



This 1944 portrait of Sinatra shows him not as the bobby sox idol of the period, nor like his familiar later images, but as an eager young man. The raised arm is one aspect of Halsman's posing. The image area within the mat is 13 ¼ x 9- inches.
