1 EINSTEIN, ALBERT Original Candid Black & White Photograph of Albert Einstein and Film Mogul, Carl Laemmle Senior, Founder of Universal Pictures, Inscribed by Albert Einstein
Hollywood 1931 
An unusually large image, 11” x 14”, taken on January 8, 1931, when Einstein and his wife visited Hollywood. The image shows Albert Einstein and Film Mogul, Carl Laemmle Senior, Founder of Universal Pictures. The photograph is a striking informal image of these two noted Jewish leaders and fellow German emigres chatting on a studio sound stage at Universal City, with Mrs. Einstein visible in the background. The photograph is inscribed and signed by Albert Einstein, to the head of Universal's publicity department, John LeRoy Johnston, who had sent this photograph of Einstein with his boss Laemmle to Einstein to sign. Einstein has written in white ink: “Fur Kohn Johnston - Albert Einstein”. Tipped to the verso is a typed note written in German from Johnston on his printed Universal Pictures stationery to Professor Einstein asking him to inscribe the photograph. Many photograph portraits of Einstein are rather stuffy affairs and a number look like police lineups when he appeared in public and met famous people and dignitaries. This is a striking image of the two men conversing. A historic and excellent photograph and the finest piece from his visit to Hollywood to ever appear on the market.
