Hugo, Victor (1802 – 1885)
An extraordinary and huge signed and inscribed portrait by Victor Hugo.
An approximately 10″ X 15″ image affixed to an approximately 18″ X 24″ matte, photographer’s name ‘Walery’ embossed below. A striking portrait of Hugo seated in a chair, staring wistfully into the camera. Boldly signed in fountain pen ink, ‘A ma bonne Virginie Noel, Victor Hugo’.
Some age toning, and a few nicks to the outer edges, plus a 2″ inch tear to the top matte area, which has been neatly repaired, otherwise in fine condition.
Would make an imposing addition to any collection!
