Description


Remarkable vintage matte-finish 17.25 x 22.75 silver gelatin portrait of President Roosevelt by the Harris & Ewing photography studio, signed and inscribed in white ink, "To the Town Criers of Rhode Island, from, Franklin D. Roosevelt.” Lower right corner also signed in white ink by the studio. In fine to very fine condition. Consignor notes that this photograph was presented to the town criers of Rhode Island by fellow crier Senator Theodore Francis Green on September 9, 1942. Green was a committed Democrat who served as the governor of Rhode Island from 1933 to 1937, and afterwards as a Rhode Island state senator for 24 years. As governor Green enacted legislation to help the poor several weeks before FDR's 'New Deal' came into effect, and as a senator Green's relationship with Roosevelt was so close that he was often referred to as 'the president's man.' A magnificent portrait made all the more desirable by its immense size and New England connection—quite possibly the most impressive signed portrait of FDR we have offered.
