About this Item

Three typed letters signed to the editor of Art & Antiques magazine. The first, one page, written from Iceland in April 1989, proposes an article on how poets write about paintings, referencing, among others, her former teacher Elizabeth Bishop. Salter also speaks briefly of the latest book by her then-husband, Brad Leithauser. The second letter, two pages, June 1989, also written from Iceland, proposes a piece about growing up in a house with a collector of political memorabilia, and, as an aside, suggests there may be something to be written about the aesthetic sense (or lack thereof) in Iceland. The third letter, one page, November 1990, this time from Massachusetts, transmits a two-page (photocopied) poem she's written called "Art Lessons," written in lieu of an article on the lack of art in Iceland, which begins "Why has Iceland no Tiepolo?" Interesting, densely written letters, and a possibly unpublished two-page poem. All items fine. Envelopes included. Bookseller Inventory # 030807
