Description: [ART] Vera Spier Kuhn (1885–1961) studied jewelry-making in Washington D.C. and Woodstock, NY, and opened a studio on East 23rd Street in 1908. There, she met the artist Walt Kuhn; they married the next year. During his involvement with the Association of American Painters and Sculptors (AAPS), Vera Kuhn stayed with her mother and Brenda, their young daughter, at her mother’s home in Chevy Chase, Maryland. He credited Vera with being the most important factor in his success. The majority of the Walt and Vera Kuhn letters reside at The Archives of American Art, Smithsonian, Washington DC. Offered here is an ALS, Hotel Chelsea [NYC], 1955, 1p, to her daughter, Brenda, who is at the Kuhn home in Cape Neddick, Maine. She tells Brenda about Walt's painting ATHLETE IN WHITE FACE is going to an exhibition but needs a frame. Maynard mentioned in the letter was the dealer handling the Kuhn Estate art work during the 1950s. She says she told Matnard that the move did not mean that "we were joining the group..." She signs Ve. Envelope included. VG. The photo of Vera Kuhn is not included here; it is in the Archives of American Art collection.
