Horgan, Paul.

An autograph letter sent to Trini & Cortie Barnes of Santa Fe, dated 1988. Sent on pictorial stationary with a reproduction of a Peter Hurd watercolor.


Horgan discusses a biographical sketch he did ob Peter Herd and his watercolors. "He loved Constable's by-the-way sketches and learned much from them and then in his own unmistakable manner caught his own lands of plain and mountain and sky, in one of (the) greatest and truest commentaries on the Southwest ever made. His truth in vision will one day be rediscovered, to the great advantage of the history of American painting in our time, which in our midst of it is so arrogantly bleak." Signed "Pablo."
