World-famous Italian opera singer Enrico Caruso's hand-drawn sketch, unsigned, on Plaza Hotel Buenos Aires stationery. Best known for his signature role as Canio in ''Pagliacci,'' Caruso was also an accomplished caricature artist. Likely a friend or acquaintance circa 1917, as Caruso was touring South America at the time, portrait depicts a man with furrowed eyebrows and curly hair pursing his lips. Drawing is done in pencil, upside down on the lined stationery measuring 8.25'' x 10.5''. Matted in white to an overall size of 10.5'' x 14.5''. Toning throughout and minor folds, in very good condition. From a larger collection of Caruso caricatures, and identified as such.
