Item 7382 - Marie Curie Signed Photograph Catalog 1008 (May 2020)

(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $500.00
Sold Price: $6,957.50 (includes buyer's premium)


Polish-born French physicist (1867-1934), she and her husband Pierre discovered two new elements, polonium and radium; for this work they received the 1903 Nobel Prize for Physics. Curie was also the sole winner of the 1911 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Exceedingly rare vintage glossy 6 x 8 portrait of Curie looking directly into the camera, signed at the bottom in fountain pen, "M. Curie." In very good to fine condition, with scattered light creasing, trivial loss to the upper right corner tip, and poor signature contrast against her dark dress. Although the autograph is difficult to discern, Curie is tremendously rare in signed photographs—this being just the second we've ever offered—and the image alone is an exemplary portrayal of one of the most famous female scientists in history. A true rarity, signed by the two-time Nobel Prize winner. From the Collection of Dr. Lawrence E. Miller.
