Provenance

The photographs originate as the collection of Achille Clivio and were inscribed and given to him by the various artists. At his death they passed into the hands of a friend of the family, Ugo Ottolenghi, who in turn passed them down to his son, Athos. Athos and Anna Ottolenghi donated the collection to Sibley Music Library in 1997.

 

Scope and Content

The collection constitutes an excellent group of photographs of both major and minor opera singers and conductors from the tum-of-the century. The ephemera also include interesting memorabilia relating to opera of the time.

 

Associations

Watanabe Special Collections maintains an Iconography collection that includes many similar photographs, some inscribed to various individuals, of major and minor performers of the same time period.

 

Restrictions and Use

There are no restrictions on the use of this collection.
