Rare ALS:
"Andrew-". 2 pages, 7x10½, single-sided sheets, fabric-textured paper. Bradford Point, Cushing, Maine. In full: "Dear Thornton: Very sorry for my delay in replying to your letter of June 14 - Have been sailing along the coast most of the summer. I have written to my Gallery in New York to send to the McClees Gallery my water color - The Open Door. Sounds like a very exciting idea for your exhibition With warmest regards Sincerely." Wyeth (1917-2009, born in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania) found the subject matter for his paintings in the two regions in which he lives: Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania (winter) and Cushing, Maine (summer). Wyeth's work provides almost photographic depictions of lonely rural life. His best-known painting, Christina's World, depicts a neighbor, polio-stricken Christina Olson, picking berries in the grass while looking at her large home on a hill. Wyeth's letters rarely appear on the market. One mentioning his paintings is extremely desirable. Lightly toned and creased. Random ink stains. Folded once vertically and twice horizontally. Otherwise in fine condition.
