MARION PIKE
Letter from the California based celebrity artist to comedienne Phyllis Diller, stating that she recently vacationed with the stroke recovering Claudette Colbert, and that several of her paintings were purchased by "Dolores". Extremely rare!
Autograph Letter signed: "Marion", 2p, 6x4¼. No place, no date. On personal note card to actress/comedienne Phyllis Diller. In full: "I always love hearing from you. Thanks for the Xmas card. Just returned from Barbados where I spent five weeks with Claudette Colbert who is just recovering slowly from a stroke - very sad!! I hope you are well & that you & Bob are still enjoying all the holidays. Please give him my love - too. I'm working as usual. Dolores bought a lot of my new paintings on her last trip - and it was like a shot in the arm - for she thought there was real progress. Come over sometime - I think of you very often. Move love. Merry Xmas!!" California painter Marion Pike (1913-1998) was best known for her portraits of celebrities, including Ronald Reagan, Bob Hope and Coco Chanel, many of whom were her personal friends. First studying Asian arts while attending university in San Francisco, Pike later traveled to Europe where she first established herself as a portrait artist, and eventually continued her studies at the Imperial University of Tokyo. Her paintings were exhibited across the world, but proved particularly popular in Europe, which helped land her into the exclusive celebrity circle that eventually led to her most famous paintings. Most notable of her celebrity portraits is of her personal friend Coco Chanel, who at the time had been consistently refusing requests to sit as a subject for artist Pablo Picasso. Corners slightly worn and creased. Slightly toned. Fine condition.
