Signed presentation portrait photograph of The Duke of Edinburgh. Three quarter length seated portrait in naval uniform. Printed signature of Baron lower right. Signed ‘Philip’ and dated ‘1953’ in ink in the lower mount in the Duke’s hand. Framed and glazed.

Stirling Henry Nahum (1906-1956) known professionally as Baron first made a name for himself in the 1930's photographing ballet dancers. After the war he concentrated on society and celebrity portraits. As close acquaintance of Prince Philip’s, he was appointed as Court Photographer to the British Royal Family, and took the official photographs for many occasions such as the wedding of Philip to Princess Elizabeth in 1947, the christenings of their children Charles and Anne and other occasions. Put forward in 1953 by Prince Philip to provide the official photographs of the Coronation, he was to be disappointed. The appointment of Cecil Beaton was preferred by the Queen Mother.
