FAIRFIELD PORTER

(1907-75) American painter and art critic.

Line drawing rendered in pen and ink above a brief Autograph Letter Signed, April 10, 1964 docketed on verso.

Below his sketch of a girl sitting with pen in hand Porter writes, "Dear Mrs. Brumbaugh: I hope this will be enough writing and sketch for you to find connections." He signs in full. Porter's later work, considered his best, reflects his emphasis on domestic scenes as shown here and paintings of his family. His paintings are owned by major American museums including the Smithsonian, Metropolitan Museum of Art and MOMA. The page measures 8.5 x 11 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 15 7/8 x 18 3/4. www.schulsonautographs.com.
