by KENT, Rockwell (1882 - 1971)
Ausable Forks, NY, 1973. unbound. 1 page, 10.5 x 8 inches, Ausable Forks, New York, April 23, 1943. Written to Arthur Price at Sears & Roebuck, reminiscing about a school trip he made to Bedloe's Island when he was 15 years old, in part: "...I will be delighted to make you a Statue of Liberty cover. I am going to New York in a few days, and I will pick up some additional photographs of the lady while I'm there. I ran afoul of the lady or, rather, of her keeper, when I was about fifteen years of age. A half-dozen of us boys from school got put out of her and off her island for raising hell in the form of a game of cops and robbers up and down the stairway in her arm. We were ordered to go out to the end of the pier and wait there and to take the next boat to Manhattan and never darken the shores of Bedloe's Island again..." Natural folds; staple holes in the upper left corner. Very good condition. American painter, printmaker, writer, and illustrator, especially known for his crisp modernist style. (Inventory #: 267938)
