Lot 502: Austrian artist and occasional writer (1877–1959), a member of the Blaue Reiter group, best known for his expressionistic illustrations for works by Poe, Dostoevsky, E.T.A. Hoffmann, and others. Lengthy ALS in German, signed "Kubin," on both sides of a 5.75 x 4 government postcard, no date but postmarked Austria, 1930. Kubin writes to Karl Hosaeus, in part (translated): "I am really satisfied with the entire result of the exhibition in Linz—it was beyond my expectations…If the state price could be added to it—it would really please me." In fine condition, with a uniform shade of mild toning.
