Jascha Heifetz

Jascha Heifetz, 1950

The Estate received an inquiry from someone who owns a print of Jascha Heifetz. “I traded a violin bow for this portrait a while ago,” he told us, showing us a photo of the front and back of the print and asking if we had more information about it. The above, from the same sitting, was included in the PBS American Masters documentary¬†Jascha Heifetz: God’s Fiddler.

Karsh photographed Jascha Heifetz in 1945 and in 1950.
