Rare photograph of Schönberg by Man Ray, signed by the photographer and dedicated by Schönberg to his Spanish disciple
[Roberto GERHARD (1896-1970), born in Valls, Catalonia, studied piano in Barcelona with Enrique Granados, and was a pupil of the Catalan composer Felipe Pedrell, before becoming, in 1924, Schönberg's disciple in Vienna and Berlin, of which he was the only Spanish pupil].
Under his spectacular photograph of Schönberg's head, MAN RAY signed in pencil: "Man Ray".
Underneath, Schönberg inscribed the dedication to his dear pupil and disciple Robert Gerhard as a friendly reminder of the charming Spanish stay, with the wish to repeat it soon (and hoping that we were also satisfied with him) : "Meinem lieben Schüler und Jünger Herrn Robert Gerhard zur freundlichen Erinnerung an den schönen spanischen Aufenthalt, mit dem Wunsch, nach einer baldigen Wiederholung (Hoffentlich waren Sie mit mir ebenso zufrieden!) Herzlichst
