        Fine pencil, ink and watercolor design for a New Yorker cover

      No place, [ca. 1950] - Although this is a preparatory drawing, it is a well-rendered, lively, and highly decorative image, consisting of a montage of fall motifs: colorful foliage, spacious skies, amber grain, purple mountains, fruited plains, a church, a silo, a school complete with child, tourist directions, with "The New Yorker" lettered at the top and a vertical border of grapes at the left edge. Although not used as a cover, this delightful design would have made a wonderful one. One the verso of the drawing is a portion of an ink sketch of a mother, daughter, and lady visitor in a living room. Barbara Shermund, a talented artist, did a number of cartoon drawings for popular magazines. Along with Helen Hokinson and Mary Petty, she was also one of the few female artists to work extensively for The New Yorker 12 1/2" x 9 1/2"; in an archival mat, overall dimensions 18" x 15". .

        [Collaborative Manuscript]: Five in Henekey's: Not 1890 but 1950

      One quarto leaf. Considerable edgewear not effecting the text, a few drink rings on the verso, but near very good. A collaborative manuscript poem by five authors, apparently composed in bibulous camaraderie and good humor at Henekey's Wine Bar in London, presumably in 1950. The poem is written in several hands, and Signed by Gawsworth, Barker, Lindsay, and Swingler at the end. The poems, sixteen lines diveded into to numbered sections of eight lines each, seems to celebrate the chance that has gathered these scribes together in a dull September day, just as a previous generation of writers must have met. [With]: Carbon typescript of the poem annotated in ink a single unknown hand (but probably Gawsworth's) indicating which of the writers wrote which lines. A pleasing artifact of the London literary scene at mid-century featuring five interesting if not overly successful poets. .

        Luci del Varietà. Grande manifesto originale di 1 metro x 2. Il manifesto si compone di 2 fogli.

      Luci del Varietà è un film del 1950 diretto dai registi Federico Fellini e Alberto Lattuada. Nel 1950 Fellini debutta alla regia con Luci del Varietà che dirige con Alberto Lattuada. Oltre alla regia, i due registi si cimentano anche come produttori. Il soggetto della pellicola è un tema che diventerà un classico narrativo di Fellini: il mondo dell?avanspettacolo e la sua decadenza. Il pessimo esito finanziario della pellicola lascia un segno pesante sui patrimoni personali di Fellini e Lattuada e ciò contribuisce a raffreddare definitivamente i rapporti tra i due. Axs
