    Gustave Charpentier – Rare Signed Cabinet Card –French Composer

    Unbelievably rare signed Cabinet Card in excellent condition of Gustave Charpentier (25 June 1860 – 18 February 1956). He wasa French composer, best known for his opera Louise. It is by Cautin & Berger, Paris. Copies of this well known cabinet card are often reproduced.

    From Wikipedia

    Charpentier was born in Dieuze, Moselle,the son of a baker, and with the assistance of a rich benefactor he studied violin at the conservatoire in Lille before entering the Paris Conservatoire in 1881. There he took lessons in composition under Jules Massenet (from 1885) and had a reputation of wanting to shock his professors. In 1887 he won the Prix de Rome for his cantata Did on. During the time in Rome thatthe prize gave him, he wrote the orchestral suite Impressions d'Italie and began work on the libretto and music for what would become his best-known work, the opera Louise.
