Lot 602: Notable American abstract expressionist painter (1910–1962). ALS signed "Franz," three pages both sides, 6.25 x 8, October 25, 1931. Letter to Lavona Edgar about his life at Boston University. In part: "I have a roommate. He's from Maine. Tonight we bought a Drip-o-Lite coffee percolator, so we laugh to each other while eating doughnuts & drinking coffee. Our mid-nite luncheon. He with me is a supposedly art student, half the time we don't know whether we're Budding Artists, or Blooming Fools, but we're happy and get along fine together." A tear to the edge of the first page, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope addressed in his own hand, a 1931 commencement program from Leighton High School with Kline's name listed, and a 1929 Leighton High School football schedule.
