A Sign of Things to Come? Hutchinson Letter on eBay.
November 18, 2012 § 2 Comments
This letter from Mary E. Hutchinson to a Mrs. Jones (I have no idea who she is) popped up on eBay this week from a collectibles dealer specializing in autographs.
Here’s the transcription:
Dear Mrs. Jones –
Back in the crowded city, I often think of the luncheon in your beautiful home “in the woods.” If you ever get to New York, please come and see some of my paintings at my studio. And please mention to any of the art group that may come to New York, that I have a “Welcome” on my door. The address is
349 East 51 St.
(near 1st Ave. No phone. Just drop me a line.)
Mary E. Hutchinson
[notation in different hand below signature]
American artist Mary Elizabeth Hutchinson
I have a question ref. to Mary Hutchinson, can I contact you through email?
I viewed some beautiful images by Mary E. Hutchinson on your site and think that they are wonderful. In particular I favor the portraits.
Would you be able to assist me in purchasing
one or two pieces?
Has a book, with images, ever been done about her?
I would love an opportunity to talk with you in
regard all of they above.
Sincerely, Gary M
