Original photograph of Arthur Honegger filling his pipe, circa 1940s

N.p. N.p., Circa 1940s. Vintage borderless photograph of French-Swiss composer Arthur Honegger, filling his pipe with tobacco in front of his extensive, mounted pipe collection, circa 1940s. With the stamp of Omnium-Presse on the verso, along with a stamp noting the letter P, and cropping annotations in pencil.

Honegger was best known as a member of Les Six, an alliance of six French composers in Montparnasse who declared opposition to contemporary classical styles, particularly the work of Richard Wagner and impressionist music popularized by Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel.
