Postcard from the famous correspondence between American artists

American painter (1914–1976) known for his paintings of birds, exotic animals, and African-American culture. Intriguing original watercolor painting of a human face on an off-white 5.5 x 3.25 postcard addressed to photographer Carl Van Vechten, signed “Karlo,” August 25, 1951, with a note written in the borders, in full: “Playing Lil Green and preparing to go to the hospital and thinking of you!” Priebe also addressed the reverse, including his full name the return address area, “Karl Priebe.” In fine condition. Van Vechten became well-known for his portraits of notable individuals and was a famously voluminous correspondent, sending postcard portraits to many of his friends. From 1946 to 1956, he mailed thousands of postcards to Priebe alone, who frequently replied with these artistic responses. RR Auction COA.
