The provenance is superb. It was gifted by the artist to American collector and art professor David Luisi in the mid 1970s. The winning bidder will receive a copy of a poignant letter from Luisi explaining how he acquired these autographs; After describing how he spent his youth visiting art museums in Midwest America. Luisi writes, "Even though I lacked the money to purchase art from famous artists, then at least the slightest contact with them would...allow me to share some of their greatness. With this fantasy in mind I wrote to dozens of artists asking, if they would please send me an autograph... My pleas must have sounded so desperate that they responded not only with autographs but sometimes with small examples of their art, letters and other art memorabilia. Now that I am elderly and the stresses of those years have passed, I am deeply grateful for the kindness of these artists and the psychological lifelines they extended when I needed it most."

Ever the true art lover, Dr. Luisi cherished these pieces of ephemera for more than 30 years, where they remained in his private collection until last year. Would look terrific floated and framed all together.
