Feliks TOPOLSKI (1907-1989)
Two Autograph Letters Signed ("Felix Topolski") to "Dear Mr. Wolfe" and "Dear Sir", both regarding the purchase of his work.
1 page 8vo, 30 Warwick Avenue, 9 October n.y., and 1 page 8vo, 30 Warwick Avenue, n.d.
To Mr. Wolfe, Topolski writes that "I should be delighted to contribute to your collection. If you would kindly let me know how much you are prepared to pay, I shall send you a sketch of that value."
On another occasion, he writes that "Difficult times being what they are, I appreciate greatly one guinea I earned form you. Or did I? - Will the enclosed seem to you worth it? Kindly return it, if you are disappointed.
I should like to have a chance of sometimes seeing your collection of continental & British art - it must be of great value."
Feliks Topolski, born in Warsaw to a theatrical family, became an official war artist in 1940 and was naturalised in 1947. In 1975 he began his Memoir of the Century, a vast panoramic interior under the Railway Arches of Hungerford Bridge on London's South Bank, near his studio.
