Django Reinhardt – Signed Original Drawing

An original drawing of Gypsy guitar legend Django Reinhardt by Jan Mara, inscribed and signed by Reinhardt. Mara (1912-1992) was a French illustrator who's work appeared on book jackets, record covers, movie posters and menus, mostly in the 1940's and 50's. His drawing of Reinhardt (1910-1953) is signed by Mara, and signed and inscribed by Reinhardt, who wrote "A Monsieur Mara Maitre Du Design Amitie, D. Reinhardt" ("Mr Mara, A master of design, With Friendship, D.Reinhardt.") The drawing measures 7.5" x 9", and has been archivally (and beautifully) framed, to an overall 13 1/2" x 15 1/2". The drawing is in overall very good condition, with some light creasing and light aging. Django Reinhardt autographs are extraordinarily rare, and this one, on a signed original drawing, is truly special. From an outstanding Jazz collection we recently purchased; with Recordmecca's written lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
