Florence Foster Jenkins, starring Meryl Streep as the New York socialite and famously awful singer and Hugh Grant as her loyal and protective husband, was released in the US yesterday, on August 11. Coinciding with the film’s opening, Schubertiade Music & Arts is very pleased to release a special Florence Foster Jenkins catalogue of rare artifacts from the famed diva <http://schubertiademusic.us5.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=505ca1eec213078ca085d0c90&id=7979759131&e=1d1f696ebd>. 

Signed photographs from “Lady Florence” show Jenkins in all her glory, surrounded by flowers at the piano and dressed in one of her fabulous costumes. Original programs and flyers from her famous 1944 Carnegie Hall recital and earlier private performances highlight her amusing selection of repertoire, and rare unpublished Margaret Bourke-White photographs from a 1937 party at her apartment show her surrounded by younger artists. 

The real-life actor St. Clair Bayfield, played by Hugh Grant, is represented in the collection in a signed photograph and autograph letter. Also for sale is a rare original record of Jenkins, humorously inscribed and given as a gift by the American composer Samuel Barber. An original souvenir program from the Italian National Fascist Militia Band’s 1934 American tour, sponsored by Jenkins, highlights her questionable taste as a patron of the arts, completing the collection.
