Ernest Miller Hemingway (July 21, 1899 – July 2, 1961), prolific American author and journalist, original, vintage, silver print, black and white photograph, measuring 6.25 x 4.25 inches, circa 1947. Original Photograph of Hemingway seated poolside at his home in Cuba

Hemingway won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954, and is responsible for such classics as "The Sun Also Rises," "A Farewell to Arms," "For Whom the Bell Tolls" and "The Old Man and the Sea."

Until recently, Hemingway memorabilia has been exceedingly scarce. This piece hails from the personal property of Roberto Herrera Sotolongo, Hemingway's personal secretary and confidant. First meeting at the height of WWII in 1942, Herrara became a crew member aboard Hemingway's boat, the "Pilar." During this time, Hemingway was working for the US government, patrolling the Gulf Stream for German submarines. Their friendship grew through shared interests, and when Hemingway found himself traveling extensively towards the mid 1940's, it was Herrara he left in charge of his Cuban home, Finca La Vigia (Lookout Farm).

In 1961, after Hemingway's jarring suicide, Herrara was appointed head of the author's affairs in Cuba, carrying out instructions to deed the property and contents of Finca La Vigia to the people of Cuba "as a place of opportunity for wider education and research, to be maintained in his memory."

Handwritten in light pencil on verso by Roberto Herrera, “Piscina de la Finca Vigia / Mayo 1947.” In very good condition with a couple of discreet pin hole markings.
