JOHN RAITT and HERVEY ALLEN

Original portrait of Allen, drawn by John Raitt, signed by both!

Original Art signed: "Hervey Allen/a good sketch of a photograph/which does not look like me/at all.", 5½x8½. Pencil drawing also signed by the artist "J. Raitt". American author Hervey Allen (1889-1949), born William Hervey Allen, is best known for his 1933 novel, Anthony Adverse, which was made into a feature film. A veteran of WWI, Allen began his literary career as a poet while recovering from being gassed while in combat. His best known poem, "The Blindman", was published in "North American Review" in 1919, but as Allen was becoming a major poet (1920), he retreated from his fame and almost entirely gave up writing poetry during the 1930s. His other noted works include a series of historical novels, The Disinherited, about Colonial America. He completed three volumes in the series, The Forest and the Fort (1943), Bedford Village (1944) and Toward the Morning (1948), and Allen also wrote Israfel (1926), a biography of Edgar Allan Poe.While in college in the 1930s, JOHN RAITT began drawing portraits of famous people. He sent his artwork to each subject with a request that it be autographed and returned to him. Two horizontal folds. Tape affixed at corners and bottom edge. ½-inch tear at bottom edge. Lightly frayed at right edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
