About this Item

Bust-length portrait in formal attire, with hat. 178 x 129 mm. Slightly faded; creased at upper edge. "American tenor Richard Crooks. first sang in opera at Hamburg as Cavaradossi in 1927. He made his American opera début in 1930 in Philadelphia as Cavaradossi, and his Metropolitan début as Massenet's Des Grieux in 1933. He sang leading lyric roles, mostly French and Italian, with the company and elsewhere in the USA for the next ten seasons, then pursued a concert career. Crooks had a beautiful voice which. was admired for its smoothness of tone and production, as can be judged from his many recordings of opera, lieder and lighter music."
