Lot Details
HEMINGWAY, ERNEST. 1899-1961.
Photograph Signed ("Ernest Hemingway") and inscribed, 15-3/4 x 11-1/2 inches, gelatin silver print, a three-quarter length portrait by Francisco Cano, Madrid, [1959], with "Cano" hand-written in black ink at lower left, Hemingway's inscription in white ink: "To Margi Bridge - let them call it mischief, when it is past and prospered, it will be virtue. — And tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow. Best always, Papa" and additionally signed below the inscription, unmounted, ink stamps of Cano at lower right corner of verso, and numerous stamps on recto, tape residue on recto, a few small creases, chipping to lower edge.

A RARE LARGE PORTRAIT OF HEMINGWAY, a detail of a photograph taken on one of his visits to Madrid while working on assignment for Life magazine, on the bullfighting story that would become The Dangerous Summer. The location is believed to be the garden of the home of Cayetano Ordoñez, the father of bullfighting legends Luis and Antonio Ordoñez. A nice large photograph of Hemingway later in life, with a lively inscription quoting Ben Johnson.
