Rare and fine line drawing in blue pen and ink under which she wrote a note dated 2 May 1967 and signed, "Meret O.
by OPPENHEIM, MÉRET
Oppenhiem writes that she sent "19 photographs" and below in pencil she continues that she will send her Stockholm catalog. It appears that she wrote the note to Trevor after she had crafted this sketch and fit her words onto the bottom of the page. The drawing with note measures 8.25 x 11.6 and floats on a dark gray mat overlaid with a white mat, framed in black satin finished wood, matted and framed in museum quality materials, framed in 5/8/inch black satin wood. Frame measures 19 1/8 x 16. After her sensational Surrealist art piece "Object in Fur" focused great attention on her, she withdrew from the art word returning later in photography as she mentions here. She developed a unique style apart from a particular movement. Condition: this drawing is rendered on thin paper onto which another piece of paper is attached at the back along top edge. The overall condition is very good, sunning along the right and left margins, two small light age stains near the right edge, center fold visible. www.schulsonautographs.com.
