Loomis Dean (1917 – 2005)
Herbert von Karajan with his daughter Isabel at the helm of their sailing boat, France, St. Tropez, 1964
The photograph of the renowned staff photographer at LIFE magazine shows conductor Herbert von Karajan and his 4-year-old daughter during a family holiday in St. Tropez. In an interview quoted in the caption, his wife Eliette says how happy she is not to have given birth to a son - because the ambitious father would probably forbid a son to ski, fly or play the piano in order not to have to watch a possible lack of performance. The article describes the career, the strict discipline and the success of the legendary conductor.
