Lot 1631: Andrew Wyeth
Rare Manuscript, Document, and Autograph Auction
June 19, 2013
Amherst, NH, USA
Description: Full car registration form, signed "Andrew N. Wyeth," and "Betsy James Wyeth," one page, 7.25 x 3.25, expiry date of March 31, 1975. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania automobile registration form filled out in type with information pertaining to Wyeth's 1972 Stutz Blackhawk coupe, and signed on the stub portion by Wyeth and his wife. In fine condition, with a couple light creases and expected machine-cut holes. Accompanied by four original color snapshot photos: two of the Stutz alone, one of Wyeth with the car, and one of Wyeth with his wife; also accompanied by an original letter of provenance from a gentleman whose father was a friend of Wyeth's and helped him purchase the difficult-to-acquire vehicle. These Stutz cars were incredibly rare and expensive-only a few dozen per year could be manufactured, and they were disproportionally purchased by stars and celebrities. This fantastic group presents a one-of-a-kind, highly desirable collectible for any art or automobile enthusiast.
