Description


Superb vintage matte-finish 11.5 x 9.25 photo of Hemingway posing with a lion he brought down on safari in January of 1934, signed and inscribed in black ink, “To Lynn Bogue Hunt, with very best wishes from his friend, Ernest Hemingway.” Nicely double-matted and framed to an overall size of 21.5 x 19. In fine condition. Lynn Bogue Hunt was America's foremost periodical wildlife artist. From 1904 to 1960, he produced the cover art for over 100 issues of Field and Stream. Hunt also did work for Saturday Evening Post, Colliers, Country Gentleman, Boy's Life and illustrated over 50 books.

This incredible image showing Hemingway, the Great White Hunter, on safari in Tanganyika captures a major inspiration in his literary work; it was excursions such as this that inspired him to write some of his finest pieces, including Green Hills of Africa, True at First Light, The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber, and The Snows of Kilimanjaro. Infused with his brash machismo, this iconic image is quintessential Hemingway—in his prime in the wilds of the Serengeti Plain, augmented by its gorgeous signature and meaningful association between the legendary author and well-known wildlife artist. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
