        Collection of Autograph Letters

      - An interesting collection of letters from the influential French artist whose idealistic approach to aesthetics embraced so called "Art Brut" ("Raw Art" or "Low Art") and eschewed traditional standards of beauty in favor of what he believed to be a more authentic and humanistic approach to image-making. From the collection of Patrick J. Eddington, a Salt Lake City artist and high school art teacher who maintained a correspondence with many 20th-century artists. The 6 autograph and typed letters, dated 1978 to 1984, represent a warm correspondence: Dubuffet thanks Eddington for the honor of having the high school art exhibition dedicated to him, gladly offers signed books as prizes, and accepts pictures of the Thunder Mountain Monument in Nevada to send on to the Art Brut Collection, as well as reporting the news on his court case against Renault in 1981. Full translations below. 2 ALS, one in large bold writing, and 4 TLS on Dubuffet's letterhead. Each with original airmail envelope, with one additional envelope. Overall in very fine condition. Each 8.25 x 11.5 inches (21 x 28 cm.)ALS; Paris, November 20, 1978.Dear Patrick Eddington,Thank you for the letter and for the drawing, and for the eagle feather, which was very touching. I send my greetings to your coyote and all the coyotes and the antelopes of the mountain, and to your young students, who have done me a great honor by dedicating their annual exhibition to me. Your big drawing is very mysterious and very beautiful. I will send it to Lausanne to be a part of the documentation of the Art Brut Collection.Wind, fire, and joy to Salt Lake City. I wonder if you are Mormon.I am sending you a proof of a silkscreen print which I have just signed as "passed for print."Yours, Jean DubuffetTLS; Paris, March 12, 1980Dear Mr. Patrick Eddington,I am very touched to learn that the students of your university are dedicating their exhibition to me again this year. I thank them and greet them.I will be glad to inscribe copies of one of my books to the students to whom the prizes are given. Could you please send me the books and and the names (written legibly). You do not have to pay for the return post; I will cover that cost.Yours [.], Jean Dubuffet.TLS; Paris, April 30, 1981Dear Mr. Eddington,I am very glad that you like the prints. I do not want any payment for them. These images are linked to my series L'Hourloupe, following which in 1974, as you know, my works took on a different view. I am currently working on some paintings which I have named "Psycho-sites."The construction of the "Salon d'été," having been half completed, was interrupted in 1975 by the decision of the new president of the Régie Renault, who had everything that had been made destroyed. A trial followed; it has not yet reached a conclusion, because the decision of the tribunal in the first instance in 1977, and the following year by the Cour d'appel in Paris, both in favor of the Régie, were overturned in 1980 by the Cour de cassation. This court has sent the case before the Cour d'appel of Versailles, which will argue it next June.Yours, Jean DubuffetALS in bold black marker; Paris, January 2, 1982Jean Dubuffet wishes a Happy New Year to Patrick Eddington and the students of the Salt Lake City School District.TLS; Paris, March 5, 1984.Dear Mr. Patrick Eddington,Look, my tree in Salt Lake City, for the fifth year, is bursting into bloom. Bravo! I am sending you four signed posters and also some exhibition catalogues. If you don't have it already, you can get the book about my work edited by Abrams at a bookstore. And of course I don't want you to send any money.Thank you for the information about the sculptures by Chief Rolling Thunder. I would be happy to see a photograph of it. I will see if they will be of interest to the Art Brut Collection (which now carries on its activities in Lausanne.)Yours, Jean DubuffetTLS; Paris, April 17, 1984.Dear Mr. Eddington,Thank you very much for the three photographs of the mon

        Ritratto di Camillo Albertani.

      1978 - Elio Martinelli (1891-1967) eccellente pittore trentino, molto apprezzato in vita, per anni dimenticato è nato a Chizzola d’Ala, Martinelli ebbe la possibilità di studiare presso le grandi accademie di Monaco, Praga, Milano e Venezia, acquisendo non solo tecnica ma anche aprendo i propri orizzonti. Nei primi del Novecento si trasferì con la famiglia a Rovereto, dove si iscrisse alla Scuola reale Elisabettina e dove in seguito aprì uno studio nella centrale via Dante. Non aderì mai alle avanguardie. "Egli non ammetteva come valido il linguaggio non dico astrattista ma nemmeno quello di Van Gogh, di Cézanne, di Picasso", scrive il pittore Elmo Ambrosi, che conobbe Martinelli nel 1930 e andava spesso a trovarlo nel suo studio. Guardava agli artisti "tradizionali" ai grandi del Cinquecento e a Tiepolo, nel ritrarre paesaggi locali, scorci cittadini, nudi femminili, ritratti e nature morte.\rMa è soprattutto negli auto-ritratti che dimostra una grande introspezione psicologica. E’ ricordato come un uomo gentile, schivo, generoso, buono. Maestro e amico di Diego Costa fu lui a convincerlo ad abbandonare l’acquarello per passare alla pittura ad olio per poter rendere al meglio i paesaggi innevati. Diego Costa divenne famoso proprio per questi paesaggi, ma stando a studi recenti di Scudiero fu Martinelli ad influire sul Costa e non viceversa come si era sempre pensato; così come per un altro pittore, Luigi Vicentini. Al retro etichetta di catalogazione con indicazione dell’opera. Mancanze alla cornice.\r\r Formato: Olio su tela di cm 40x50 (dimensioni tela) e con cornice cm 57x68 (circa). Buono, ordinari segni d’uso e del tempo.

        The Memoirs of Richard Nixon.

      New York: Grossett & Dunlop, 1978. First edition of Nixon's memoirs. Thick octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by Nixon to Spiro Agnew, his vice president, "To Ted and Judy Agnew, With deep appreciation for their years of dedicated service to the nation. From Dick Nixon, 5-12-78." With Agnew's notes in pencil on the pages he found most interesting, with additional annotations on the individual pages denoting the specific passages. The relationship between Agnew and Nixon had grown increasingly bitter throughout their terms in office, and after Agnew resigned on October 10, 1973, they never spoke to each other again. Nixon is said to have made eight efforts to talk or meet with him--the gift of this book probably one of these--which Agnew rebuffed each time. From the library of Spiro Agnew. An exceptional association. President Richard Nixon's autobiography is an intensely personal examination of his life, public career, and White House years. With startling candor, Nixon reveals his beliefs, doubts, and behind-the-scenes decisions, and sheds new light on his landmark diplomatic initiatives, political campaigns, and historic decision to resign from the presidency. Throughout his career, Richard Nixon made extensive notes about his ideas, conversations, activities, and meetings. During his presidency, from November 1971 until April 1973, and again in June and July 1974, he kept an almost daily diary of reflections, analyses, and perceptions. These notes and diary dictations, which are quoted throughout this book, provide a unique insight into the complexities of the modern presidency and the great issues of American policy and politics.

        Max The Mouse who Made the Met

      This is an early home-made book by an eighteen year old (or 17) Tom Yakutis, who went on to a highly successful career as an animator. His later credits include Popeye (1978 - 1981), Challenge of the SuperFriends, and many stints as director, designer, or artist on episodes of such beloved cartoons as the Jetsens, the Flintstones, etc. He began his career at Disney and worked at many of the major animation studios subsequently, including Hanna and Barbera, Warner Brothers, etc. Already in this illustrated manuscript we can see the polish of his renderings, with the mice and human characters endowed with real expressiveness. The short text is not really commensurate with the quality of the illustrations, and from the many misspellings we might wonder whether Mr. Yakutis was dyslexic. The story flows crudely, but thankfully, the drawings delight and more than compensate. The setting of this mouse tale at the Met is also interesting. There is an element of humor in the tiny creature living in so grand a place, and then upending it. At the time the Met loomed larger in the American landscape as a temple of high culture, and it was a time when top singers there had a presence in popular culture as well, with singers such as Rise Stevens, Laurence Tibbett, Lily Pons, Jamila Novotna, etc. enjoying significant movie careers in popular movies.
