Item Description: Circa [1928]. [1928], 1928. Book Condition: Good. INSCRIBED & SIGNED BY THE AMERICAN COMPOSER HENRY COWELL - A 10 inch high by 8 inch wide soft toned black & white photograph by Edward Weston, photographed circa 1928, of the American composer Henry Cowell wearing a Navajo shirt. Cowell is seen from the shoulders up gazing over his left shoulder. The portrait, which is a re-strike of the photograph on glossy photographic stock, is inscribed and signed diagonally in black ink at bottom right: "With Love Blanche / from / Henry". The photograph is faintly yellowed with some minor creases. The corners are slightly worn with a small piece out from the bottom right corner and a couple of tears to the right edge which are repaired and reinforced with archival linen tape from the verso. One of the tears, longer than the other, touches on the image and slightly touches on the upper loops of the letters "h" and "e" in "Blanche". The American composer Henry Cowell (1897-1965) was strongly influenced by Oriental music as well as Irish and Midwestern folk tunes. Exploring the music of Africa, Java, and India, he revolutionized American music with innovations such as tone clusters and directly plucking the piano's strings.Photographed by Edward Weston circa 1928, this vintage portrait appears to be a re-strike from the original photograph but not from the negative.The pianist and patron of new music Blanche Walton was a good friend to Cowell and in the 1920's had provided him with financial support and a base in New York City until her own financial collapse in the great depression. She contributed $100, a good sum at the time, towards the launch of Cowell's important periodical "New Music Quarterly". Bookseller Inventory # 31397

Item Description: (1982). (1982), 1982. Book Condition: Very good. SIGNED BY THE ARTIST RANDALL ROSENTHAL - sc - An original 25-1/2 inch high by 20 inch wide color poster protesting construction of a highway in the Southampton community of Water Mill, NY illustrated with Randall Rosenthal's "Any Weekend". The illustration depicts cars of various colors raining down from the sky to crash into a huge pile below covering all that one can see into the distance. The text, boldly printed below the image, reads: "Halt the Highway / Join the Fight to Keep What's Left / Plan the Alternatives Inc., Water Mill, N.Y." The poster is signed by the artist, Randall Rosenthal, in pencil under the image. There are minor faint creases to the edges. A surfer and artist, Randall Rosenthal had early success when Salvador Dali and Andy Warhol showed up at his first major art show and showered his work with acclaim. Unwilling to sell out when the art market slowed down, he set out to get a "real job" as a carpenter. The pull of creating art was still strong and, using the skills he'd developed working with wood, he was drawn back into the art world as a sculptor. The small resort community of Water Mill, NY, a Long Island hamlet in the town of Southampton was, in 2010, listed as the 14th most expensive zip code in the US and is home to many celebrities. Needless to say that plans to expand the highway did not go over well at the time. Bookseller Inventory # 31327
