Original Eric Sloane Pen Ink Framed Comic Sketch Sloane & Wife In Model A Auto For Sale

Original Eric Sloane Pen Ink Framed Comic Sketch Sloane & Wife In Model A Auto

For your consideration is this framedoriginal pen & ink sketch by Eric Sloane, the artist who is quite famous for his paintings of historic barns and covered bridges and the many books he has written. This is a personal piece of art given to his good friends and Connecticut neighbors, Edward and Esther Anthony.This comes from theestate of the late Edward Anthony.The sketch features Sloane and his wife, Ruth, touring the countryside in their antique Model A automobile. The caption reads: " The Model A... it's windshield folded forward. It is inscribed in pencil: To The Anthonys Eric and Ruth. The sketch isprofessionallyframed and matted. The wood black & red frame measures 15.75 x 10.75 inches. The sketch measures 10 x 4.25.

Found withthe art are two pieces of handwritten papers.These will be included with the art. The first is a poem written on a part of an envelope with Eric Sloane's return address. Not sure who wrote it. The second is a note signed "Eric". It is a poem that may have accompanied the sketch when given to the Anthonys. It reads:

"Summer has come-the time is here

It's almost the end of the Dutch Treat Year

The Risings at six, the breakfast with guava

The toast and the juice and hot cup of java,

Will all be a memory till winter arrives

And action comes back to our Tuesday Lives.

Take care of yourself! Eric"

I believe both Sloane and Edward Anthony had summer homes in Connecticut and apartments in NYC. The reference of the Dutch Treat Club indicates this. This members only club met on Tuesdays for lunch. The men only club consisted of writers, artists, politicians and other celebrities or famous men. On the reverse of this note is a letter written by Anthony's wife, Esther. She signed it in red with her nickname "Little Missy Lotus Blossom". It reads: Bon Jour, Most Honorable Gents, Bon appetite. Also Bon Motoring + Bon greetings from Little Missy Lotus Blossom.

CONDITION: A few light scratches/nicks to the frame. The matt has toned from age. The art has areas of white-out. It looks like Sloane may have tried to erase or remove areas of his sketch and the surface around or near the white-out is nicked and peeling. Perhaps Sloane planned to make a print of his original sketch before giving it to the Anthonys who saw it, probably loved it, and had it signed and framed. We will never know...

I am currently listing a great weather related bookwritten byEric Sloane with original sketch of a covered bridge and will combine shipping. Please visit my store often for more vintage & antique estate treasures. I welcome any questions/comments you may have. Thank
