        Recent Paintings by Vanessa Bell with a Foreword by Virginia Woolf. The London Artist's Association. The exhibit ran from February 4th to March 8th 1930 at 92 New Bond Street.

      The Favil Press, London 1930 - A crisp copy of this 8-page stapled pamphlet, one of 500 copies printed. With some toning to the quality paper and light foxing along the left side and at the top edge of the front wrapper. With Virginia Woolf's 4-page foreword, a charming essay about her sister's paintings: "One defies a novelist to keep his life through twenty seven volumes of fiction safe from our scrutiny. But Mrs. Bell says nothing Mrs. Bell is as silent as the grave. Her pictures do not betray her. Their reticence is inviolable. That is why they intrigue and draw us on; that is why, if it be true that they yield their full meaning only to those who can tunnel their way behind the canvas into masses and passages and relations and values of which we know nothing-- if it be true that she is a painter's painter--still her pictures claim us and make us stop. They give us an emotion. They offer a puzzle." *Perhaps Vanessa Bell is best known for her charming dust jacket designs on her sister&#146;s novels (To the Lighthouse, The Waves, The Years). Vanessa Bell (née Stephen; 1879 &#150;1961) was an English painter and interior designer, a member of the Bloomsbury group, and the sister of Virginia Woolf. Vanessa Stephen was the eldest daughter of Sir Leslie Stephen and Julia Prinsep Duckworth (1846&#150;1895). Her parents lived at 22 Hyde Park Gate, Westminster, London, and Vanessa lived there until 1904. She was educated at home by her parents in languages, mathematics and history, and took drawing lessons from Ebenezer Cook before she attended Sir Arthur Cope's art school in 1896, and then studied painting at the Royal Academy in 1901. In 1906, when Vanessa Bell started to think of herself an artist, she formed the Friday Club with the purpose to create a place in London that was more favorable to painting. Vanessa was encouraged by the Post-Impressionist exhibitions organized by Roger Fry, and she copied their bright colors and bold forms in her artworks. In 1914, she turned to abstraction.

In his letter addressed to "Dear Scout Halpern", Daniel Carter Beard apologizes that while Seymour Halpern's letter has been found, the picture he'd included hasn't: "Your letter of June 23d was mislaid during the transfer of the office from here to camp and also the picture you sent was lost.... The Chief hopes the enclosed print [Not here present] taken at the Jamboree will take its place." Beard goes on to describe the accomplishments of Scouting. Signed "Daniel C. Beard / Chief".

He wrote a series of articles for St. Nicholas magazine, which later became the basis of his book "The American Boy's Handy Book". A member of the Art Students League, he was a friend of Ernest Thompson Seton. As an artist, he illustrated several books for Mark Twain.<p>The Queens, New York Republican Congressman Seymour Halpern (1913-1997) started his political career as a campaign aide to New York's powerful mayor Fiorella La Guardia and first served in New York's State Senate for 14 years before seeking a seat in the U.S. Congress. In Albany Halpern sponsored 279 bills that became law, including measures on schools, housing, civil rights, nutrition and mental health. A Liberal, he was something of an anomaly as the lone Republican representative from New York City, and generally garnered support from Labor Unions and endorsement from the Liberal Party. Yet he never even considered switching parties as he considered membership in the Republican Party a family tradition and commitment. While he found ample time for his private pursuits, including painting and collecting autographs, he took his legislative duties very seriously. Of these, he was proudest of his co-sponsorship of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and of the original 1965 Medicare legislation.
