On letterhead imprinted with his name at upper margin and a brief biography (name imprinted in Chinese characters at top) at left margin to Miss Naomi Huber, American Legation, New York, New York. In full, as written: "thank you for your kind letter and your genuine efforts in sending my pictures back. certainly, to my astonishment, and my pleasure, i am pleased to know that you are taking three of my pictures, ohio, mott street, and wyoming. i certainly hope to see you when you are back home in april. once again i want to thank you for helping me launch my exhibit in reykjavik. sincerely". Chinese-American artist Dong Moy-shu Kingman (1911-2000) often combined elements from the East and the West in his works. One of his watercolors, New Dawn, was used on a United Nations cachet for the 1984 World Food Day stamp. Other works were used in two films, Flower Drum Song and 55 Days at Peking, and Kingman's works have been part of permanent collections at such major museums as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of Art in New York City. The noted watercolorist also received two Guggenheim Fellowships and a number of other awards and honors. Slightly creased with folds, lower horizontal fold nicks the upper loop of the "D". One-inch separation at blank left margin at upper horizontal fold, 1½-inch tear from that separation touches two lines of imprinted text and the imprinted signature (all paper intact). Vertical perforation to right of biography. Otherwise, fine condition.
