1976 - 1978 ARCHIVE OF HANDWRITTEN LETTERS BETWEEN FAMED WAR ARTIST TO NOTED GERMAN-AMERICAN PROFESSOR, RABBI AND EXPRESSIONIST PAINTEROMV565
On offer is a super archive of seven  handwritten autograph letters signed [ALS] by Richard Carline [1896-1980] notable British artist and writer, dated between 1976 and 1978 (plus one  ALS by his wife Nancy) to Professor Frederick Solomon, the famed German Expressionist artist, Rabbi and friend of Carline from their old days in London. Richard Carline was an official war artist during World War I, serving in Palestine, Persia, and India. After the war, he lived in Hampstead. He joined the Middlesex Regiment in 1916, and became an officer of the Royal Flying Corps. In 1918 he was made a war artist, in which capacity he produced a series of war paintings from the air, now displayed in the Imperial War Museum. Carline attended Slade School of Art from 1921 to 1924. For over fifty years his work was displayed by the London Group, to which he was elected in 1920. Throughout his life Carline promoted a more liberal attitude to the evaluation of children's and ethnic art. His paintings are in many important collections including The Tate Museum. The letters are written to Solomon in New Hampshire. The archive boasts rather long letters with a great deal of intimate, collegial art content. Written a mere 4 years before Carline's death. VG.
