This is a picture of a composer and double bassist Sergei Koussevitsky. I played double bass very seriously in high school and earlier in college, about 7 years total. I also played violin for 9 years and just started teaching myself the acoustic guitar.
People of Note: The Double Bass Player Written in 1940 by Laurence McKinney and illustrated by Gluyas Williams.
