WALT KUHN

(1877-1949) American artist, most remembered as the key organizer of the Modern Art Armory Show of 1913 in New York City, which was the first of its genre in America. Most major American art collections include his works.

Autograph Letter Signed with initials on mechanical relief reproduction of a hand colored drawing, 8vo, New York, 1945.

Kuhn sends holiday greetings. In full, "A real 'antique' Christmas card I made in 1929. Good Luck for the ensuing year, faithfully, W.K." The drawing shows cowboys in large hats sitting around a camp fine and drinking from mugs. On a nearby scrawny evergreen, hang bottles and a pipe or spoon. Tape repair on verso across horizontal center fold.

Kuhn refers to the year, 1929, when he moved into his 18th St. studio in New York City, the studio he maintained until the end of his life. There he kept costumes for his models who would sit for portraits. Also in 1929, Kuhn gained a great deal of attention through the exhibition of his painting, "The White Clown," at the newly established Museum of Modern Art in New York.
