        Framed Typed Letter Signed about show business

      1977 - American film director, who had a close friendship with Katharine Hepburn and many other celebrities. 1 page on personal stationery, 10.5 x 7.25 inches, no place, November 9, 1977. In this jovial letter, which includes five handwritten words, Cukor talks about mutual acquaintances in the entertainment industry and discusses his plans for upcoming projects, in part: "This is the life! What a racket - this writing reviews, biographies -- and cleaning up. Boy, it's lucky for you that I didn't find out how easy it is - I'd've gone after Ethel Merman myself. But from here on in, no holds barred! I'm in this for good - so watch out.I'm going to follow Liz Smith's invaluable and intelligent suggestion that I write 'MY FRIEND, GRETA'. No - I'd better not do that because Gaylor Hauser said 'She's my best friend.' I'll think up another title.I'm glad that it was happy times with Miss Merman; also that you talked yourself into getting one percent of the Cole Porter show. It gives me an idea, I'll get into that side of it later on -- writing musical shows." Three horizontal folds and a small stain near the bottom left corner, but overall in very good condition. Float-mounted above a 3.5 x 4.5-inch black-and-white photo of Cukor crouching outdoors on one knee with two dogs. Matted in gray and set in a white frame measuring 19 x 12 inches.

        SCREENPLAY FOR THE MOVIE "GREYSTROKE"

      (No-place:: no-publisher,. August 4, 1977). Early draft of Robert Towne's screenplay for the 1984 movie "Greystroke," which was based on Burroughs' novel, TARZAN OF THE APES. The film was directed by Hugh Hudson with Christopher Lambert starring as "Tarzan" (the name is never used in the film's dialogue) and Andie MacDowell as Jane; the cast also included Sir Ralph Richardson, who received an Academy Award nomination for "Best Supporting Actor." Unfortunately Towne, who was apparently frustrated at being passed over for director, used the pseudonym "P. H. Vazak" (the name of his dog) for the film and so his Oscar nomination for "Best Adapted Screenplay" was under that name. 170 pages, printed on rectos only, clasp bound with black card covers. Plain white label on front with handwritten "GREYSTROKE / Rob't Towne"; title handwritten on "spine" (left-side page edges). Covers a little loose but holding, otherwise very good.

        Ein Mönch in Versuchung. Ein Mönch in seiner Studierstube wendet sich mit abwehrend erhobenem Arm von einer sich ihm nackt darbietenden Frau ab, rechts neben dem Kamin das Böse in Gestalt eines feuerschnaubenden Bären.

      . Feder und Pinsel in Grau, Aquarell, mit einigen Deckweißlichtern, auf Velin, auf graues Bütten aufgezogen. 19,5:18 cm. Gutachten: O.R. von Lutterotti, Innsbruck, vom 20.02.1977 (in Fotokopie). Lutterotti hat das Aquarell in die Jahre 1785/91 datiert und als Vergleich auf die Abb. 91-94 in seiner Monographie über Koch, hingewiesen. Vergleichsliteratur: O.R. von Lutterotti, Joseph Anton Koch, 1768 - 1839. Mit Werkverzeichnis und Briefen des Künstlers. Berlin, 1940, Abb. 91 - 94.. Das Aquarell ist ein Dokument aus den Jahren, als Koch die Hohe Karlsschule in Stuttgart besuchte und zeigt seinen Sinn für Humor. Bevor Koch sich für das Fach der Landschaftsmalerei entschied, entstanden Zeichnungen und Aquarelle mit figürlichen Motiven, darunter auch einige mit karikaturhaften Zügen. Durch frühe, autodidaktische Übung im Zeichnen erlangte Koch auf diesem Gebiet Fertigkeiten, die den Weihbischof von Augsburg veranlaßten, ihn in Augsburg bei dem Bildhauer I. Ingerl (1752-1800) und dem Maler J.J. Mettenleitner (1750-1825) ausbilden zu lassen. Von 1785-1791 besuchte er die Hohe Karlsschule in Stuttgart, wo er Schüler von A.F. Harper (1725-1806) und Ph.F. von Hetsch (1758-1838) war. 1791 floh er aus Stuttgart als Anhänger der französischen Revolution nach Straßburg. 1792 lebte er in Basel, 1793/94 unternahm er Studienreisen in der Schweiz, es entstanden Alpenstudien. 1794 wanderte er zu Fuß nach Italien und machte Station in Florenz, Neapel, Salerno und Paestum. 1795 kam er in Rom an, wo ihm der englische Kunstmäzen G.F. Nott ein Stipendium für drei Jahre aussetzte. 1805-1810 Wanderungen in Italien, es entstanden heroische Landschaften. Von 1812-1815 folgte ein Aufenthalt in Wien, er kehrte 1815 nach Rom zurück, wo er bis zu seinem Tode ansässig blieb. Koch wurde zur Hauptfigur der deutschen Künstlerkolonie in Rom.

From the editor's notes: "Throughout its existence, an important part of the Photo League's activities was the publication of "Photo Notes". Beginning as a wall newspaper, "Photo Notes" grew into a mimeographed newsletter which Edward Weston described as "the best photo magazine in the country". Included in its pages were not only announcements and reviews of exhibitions, but also news of members' activities, and lively debates on photographic issues." This reprint edition was supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York State Council for the Arts and was only produced in a very small number. Scarce and rarely offered. Inquiries welcomed. (please note: extra charges may apply to ship outside of U.S. due to the size and weight of this volume.) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
