Description: In this undated typed letter signed, Miserendino writes in part: “… Much as I would like to claim the authorship of the painting you refer to, I cannot do so. I may, however be in a position to assist in finding the artist if I may be privileged to view the painting. In fact, since there seems to be a close affinity of my interpretation of nature and of the subject concerned, I am keenly interested in the whole subject. May I take this opportunity also to invite you and Mr. Bryan to my studio to view my personal exhibition.”

Vincenzo Miserendino (1875-1943) studied art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome before immigrating to the U.S. in 1894. He is noted for his public and private sculptures of prominent individuals, especially Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, Christopher Columbus, etc.

Written on a 10 1/2″ x 7 1/4″ sheet of stationery imprinted: “Vincenzo Miserendino Sculptor 141 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY”.┬áItem #A01419
