Uncommon, extra fine presidential portrait inscribed and signed to a relative

Harry S. Truman, 18841972.  33rd President of the United States, 19451953.  Beautiful 11" x 13½" black-and-white portrait photograph inscribed and signed to a relative, To Ruth Hill Dickenson, with kindest regards.  /  Harry S. Truman.

This is a magnificent photograph of Truman that he has signed to one of his relatives.  We acquired it directly from the family.  Presidential portraits inscribed and signed to relatives are scarce and desirable.  So, too, are large format photographs of presidents such as this one, particularly in this condition.  This would therefore be an outstanding addition to any Truman or presidential collection. 

Truman almost certainly signed this undated photograph as President.  Truman had the habit of dating items that he signed after he left the White House.  The signature is typical of those in of Truman his later White House years and likely dates from the period between early October 1951, when Truman adopted the flat top on the "r" in "Truman,” and January 20, 1953, when he left office.

Truman has inscribed and signed this photograph in brown ink.  The inscription and signature show a bit of fading from prior framing, but both are still nicely readable.  The photograph is in extra fine condition and would be magnificent framed.

Unframed.  Please click here for information about custom framing this piece.

Note that the actual photograph has a much larger white border.

We could not scan the entire photograph because of its 11" x 13½" size.
