Among Rolf Keller’s sketches, there are several ones showing piano players, so today’s article is just the first in a small series. This sketch is undated, the “24”-Logo identifies the artist as Rolf Keller. The piano is only hinted at by a single line showing one edge of the instrument. The caption reads “Natalia Karra, London spielt ChOPIN” (Natalia Karra, London, plays ChOPIN). I am not sure about the name, but as far as I am familiar with Rolf Keller’s handwriting, it should be “Karra”. I have not found any information about a pianist of this name, however. I don’t know when this sketch was drawn, maybe in the 1940s, when good paper was hard to get, but I am not sure.
A moment of concentration, captured in a few lines.
