Typed Letter Signed, on postcard postmarked Fort Meyers, Dec. 23, 1978
by RAUSCHENBERG, ROBERT
Rauschenberg writes to noted American photographer Arnold Newman indicating in all caps that he is, "RUNNING A LITTLE LATE THIS HOLIDAY. YOU'LL HEAR FROM ME SOON." The artist signs in all capital letters as well, "BOB RAUSCHENBERG." Arnold Newman, (1918-2006) was known for his portraits, identified as the "Father of Environmental Portraiture." Letters of Rauschenberg are rarely on the market. Our brief typed letter to noted photographer is exceptional. The postmark of Fort Meyers suggests that Rauschenberg wrote this letter from his home and studio on Captiva Island, Florida. (Inventory #: 4269)
