Silver Gelatin Print [11×14]. Black and White Photograph of Saul Bellow. Signed by him. Shot by reknowned photographer Art Shay in October 1976, the same day the author heard that he had been awarded the Nobel Prize in literature. Shay is a former Time-Life staff reporter who became a full-time photojournalist in the early fifties. More than 25,000 of his photographs have since appeared in numerous publications, including Life, Time, the New York Times, Fortune, and Sports Illustrated. His work has been much exhibited, critically acclaimed, and collected. He has won some twenty Art Director awards for distinguished photography, as well as commendation for Life magazine’s “Picture of the Year” in 1959. Signed and stamped by Shay on the verso. In Fine Condition. A Beautiful Signed Photograph.

Saul Bellow is the only author to have received three National Book Awards, for The Adventures of Augie March, Herzog, and Mr. Sammler’s Planet, in addition to both the Pulitzer and Nobel prizes. The Sunday Times praised these achievements when it revered "Bellow’s oeuvre [as] both timeless and ruthlessly contemporary."
