[SCIENTISTS]. [EINSTEIN, Albert (1879–1955)]. –– ORLIK, Emil (1870–1932), artist. Lithograph signed (“Albert Einstein”). N.p., 1928.

Small 4to (279 x 202 mm). Lithographic full–length seated portrait of Einstein playing the violin, SIGNED AND DATED AT LOWER LEFT BY EINSTEIN. Additionally signed and marked as a proof (“Probedruck”) by the artist in pencil, lower right and left. (Light toning outer margin, else fine).

AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE lithograph of Einstein performing one of his most cherished pastimes, having once been quoted as saying that he would probably have become a musician if he had not become a physicist. As he became older, he switched to piano because he no longer liked the way he played violin. We could locate only one other signed proof of this image which is housed at the American Institute of Physics.
