215: ILLUSTRATED AUTOGRAPHS OF HURD, WIEGHORST & DELANO
These illustrated 'cowhide calling cards' are decorated by three major artists of the American West: Olaf Wieghorst, Peter Hurd and Gerard Curtis Delano. Similar to sending a personality one's autograph book, Tom Watson passed out these small cowhide shape leather patches to prominent artists of the day (late 1960s to early 1970s), most of whom he was personal friends with. As Honorary Member of the Cowboy Artists of America and active adviser the members of this group and other artists, he knew all the top names of the day. These three are from Tom's large collection.
Each measures 3.5 x 3 inches.
Very good condition.
Provenance: The estate of Tom Watson, Honorary Member of the Cowboy Artists of America.
