Church, Frederic Edwin (1826-1900) American Romantic landscape painter who was one of the foremost members of the Hudson River school. He was a student of Thomas Cole.

Autograph Note Signed with Original Artwork ("Church"). One page, 4¾ x 6¾", Carnegie, November 9, 1911. To "Dear Doctor". Tipped into larger sheet, 9¼ x 8". Minor toning of larger sheet, with one of its corners missing. Fine.

A very informal piece from this master of the grand vista. "Saw Jim W. to night, he will give me sitting soon. Send up size of sheet." Above the text is a sketch of two bears, one sketching another. Presumably this is meant to be Church and "Jim W." during the sitting mentioned in the note.
Estimated Value $275 - 350.

Realized $449
