Jacob Kramer (British, 1892-1962)
Portrait of Louis 'Satchmo' Armstrong, head and shoulders
signed 'Kramer' (lower right), also signed 'Louis Armstrong' by the sitter and 'Alpha Armstrong' his wife (lower left) pastel
45 x 35cm (17 11/16 x 13 3/4in).

Footnotes

  • Louis Armstrong married his third wife, Alpha in 1938, but he married again in 1943, so this portrait can be dated to the years soon after 1938. The portrait was painted in England, probably when Armstrong was on tour.
