Signed by the artist William Sharp in pencil. Inscribed by Nobel Peace Prize winner Albert Schweitzer, “A Mr John Zuber avec mes bonnes pensees Albert Schweitzer. Lambarene 13. Juin 1960.” The translation reads, “To Mr John Zuber with my good wishes Albert Schweitzer Lambarene 13th June 1960.” Schweitzer received the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize for his philosophy of “Reverence for Life”, expressed in many ways, but most famously in founding and sustaining the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Lambaréné, now in Gabon, west central Africa. The lithograph measures 14.5 inches by 11.5 inches. Double matted and framed. The entire piece measures 19 inches by 22.5 inches. A unique piece, rare and desirable.
