DE VALERA, Éamon: Original portrait photograph of Éamon de Valera by Hurley of Dublin

575.00

Out of stock

140 x 98mm, showing Dev in civilian clothes, seated in front of a window, writing at a small table, looking towards the camera, Fáinne in his lapel. Signed by Éamon de Valera. [Circa 1920], mounted on stiff card. Signs of singe marks. Note on verso states that this photo was won in a draw in aid of the Republic of Ireland at the Rotunda. 'Dublin, 1920 / Hanrattys Hotel / June 24th 37.' Overall in good condition.

An uncommon photo, intended to promote Dev’s image as a responsible political leader. One of the first in a whole series of photos showing him with pen in hand, clearly meant to signal his choice of the pen, not the sword, as his instrument. (Cumann na nGael propaganda at this time often showed him with a gunman behind his back).
