1937. 1st Edition . No Binding. Good. TYPED & HANDWRITTEN LETTER by GEORGE GROSZ. TWO PAGE LETTER, addressed to AMERICAN ARTIST MARSHALL GLASIER, dated October 10, 1937. Typed and Handwritten on both sides of a single 8.5" x 11" sheet of "Douglas Manor" stationery, with the letterhead: "202 SHORE ROAD - DOUGLAS MANOR - LONG ISLAND - N.Y." (Douglas Manor hosted a thriving colony of various artists, including George Grosz.) The letter is typed on the front side and on half of the back side, is hand signed at the end of the typed portion, then handwritten for half a page beneath the signature. The handwritten portion is in Grosz's beautiful calligraphy, written with a fountain pen. The handwritten portion is significant both in size and subject matter, 19 lines, discusses artists, reason for his quitting teaching, and touches on the Spanish Civil War by mentioning fellow artists who went to Spain to fight with the Loyalists. The front typed side of the letter has a pencil margin note that is clearly in Grosz's hand, and a red pencil circling of one section. It also has a number of small, handwritten corrections, also in Grosz's hand.
