The Divine - Vintage Original Photograph of Maria Callas - End of 1960s

1960s

About

The Divine is a beautiful black-white photographic portrait of the opera star Maria Callas at the peak of succes, realized by an unknown artist around the 1960.'s. In very good condition with some minimal defects (a missing higher left corner and some light folds on the corners) on the margins. These defects do not affect the photography. Her artistic success oif a young and virtuous soprano joined with her frequent media presence were two elements that helped to build a real myth around her, creating "the Divine" Maria Callas. Maria Callas (New York, 1923 - Paris, 1977) The American soprano of Greek origin, naturalized Italian and later Greek, was equipped with a particular voice, with a unique tone of considerable volume, great extension and agility. Maria Callas contributed to the rediscovery of the Italian repertoire of the first half of the nineteenth century, called "belcanto renaissance", or Vincenzo Bellini and Gaetano Donizetti, of which she was able to give a personal reading in a dramatic key (her interpretations of Norma and Lucia were fundamental in this regard of Lammermoor). Her artistic success joined with her frequent media presence, two elements that helped to build a real myth around her, creating "the Divine".
