Descripción:

Framed vintage photograph of novelist, essayist, and poet Richard Wright in his earliest days as an expatriate. INSCRIBED by Wright to Norwegian journalist Johannes Skancke Martens: "To / S. Martens / Sincerely yours / Richard Wright / Paris / Oct. 16, 1948." Martens interviewed Wright on several occassions, most notably after the author's performance in the Argentinian film version of "Native Son" in 1951.While his first two novels, "Native Son" and "Black Boy," were enjoying success in the United States, Wright was not particularly happy there. He moved to Paris in 1946 and became an expatriate, a move that would define him both as a person and a writer for the remainder of his life. In the two years between that move and the inscription here, he befriended Sartre and Camus, as well as fellow African-American writers Chester Himes and James Baldwin. He became a French citizen in 1947 and at the time of this inscription was traveling extensively throughout Europe, Asia, and Africa.10 x 13.5 inches, black frame with white matting, unexamined out of frame but presents as about Near Fine, with some very light creasing at one corner.
