Autograph letter signed: "Sigmund Menkes" in blue ink. 6x9. August 9, 1968, no place. To "Dear Mr. Tenenbaum" in full: "I have received your lettres- I am sorry to tell you- that I am not in a position to help you- In the publication of your book- I hope that you will find a way to accomplish this. Of course I will purchase one or two books when it is published- With best regards". Sigmund Menkes (1896-1986) began his artistic studies in 1912 at the Industrial School in Lviv. In 1923 Menkes settled in Paris, where he became a member of the École de Paris, studying multiple mediums. In addition to painting oils on canvas, Menkes produced gouaches, watercolors, and drawings. He also created a series of sculptures, primarily during a prolonged visit to Italy with Jacques Lipchitz. In 1936 he had his first solo exhibition in New York at the Sullivan Gallery on 57th Street. Menkes received a series of important distinctions for his work, including the Carol H. Beck Medal of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (Philadelphia, 1943), the Gold Medal of the Corcoran Gallery (Washington, D.C., 1947), the Andrew Carnegie Award of the National Academy of Design (New York, 1955), and the Alfred Jurzykowski Award (New York, 1967).
