Admin History/Bio
Solway notes in his autobiography that Ysaÿe encouraged his pupils to look beyond the study of music alone. He encouraged them to travel and to investigate other arts in order to enrich their understanding of the world.
Notes
Photo is signed with a stylized character, and inscribed on the back, "Vous avez connu ce lieue et vous y avez travaille avec le vrai [lu?]," roughly translated as "You have known this place and there understood its truth." In another hand it has been identified as "Ysaÿe's studio in Brussels." It is unclear who has made these inscriptions.

This photo is taken outside the entrance of Ysaÿe's home. Gingold and Solway are arm in arm and posturing jovially. The word written across the gate is "la chanterelle", which is the colloquial name for the highest string on the violin (the E string).
Notes
The photo is taped with transparent tape at the top and has been written upon the back in pencil. An earlier message appears to have been erased from under the newer identifying inscription.

Maurice Solway studied at the conservatory with Henri Czaplinsky, before travelling to Europe.
