Lot 9019

ALS signed “Jackie,” four pages on two adjoining sheets, 5.25 x 6.75, The Carlyle letterhead, no date but postmarked late January 1960. Letter to Franz Bueb, in full: "I am so delighted about the drawing of Alice. You were an angel to save it for me—I came up to N. Y. this weekend—so I will leave it with Alice tomorrow—which is much easier than crating it to go to Palm Beach—Then each sister in law can stare at a picture of the other—though I have much the prettiest one to stare at! For God's sake please dig up another picture of Chatsworth or invent one—Mrs. Kennedy has now borrowed mine for the winter & I have a ghastly feeling I may never get it back!! Or else all our lives I will have it in the summer & she will take it each winter! I send you our Xmas card—which Jack happily sent to every Democrat in the country—because I thought you might like to see your watercolor hanging behind us—So many thanks dear Franz for keeping your drawing until I could get it—I hope to see you soon—." In very good to fine condition, with several intersecting folds and overall light creasing. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope addressed in Kennedy's hand. Bueb was a German-born artist who taught painting to Jacqueline Kennedy during the 1950's and 1960's. Bueb painted many portraits of the future first lady, as well as various landscapes of Chatsworth, England, the former home of John F. Kennedy’s late sister Kathleen. Additionally, just a few weeks earlier, Senator Kennedy commenced his campaign for president in the Democratic primary election.

Estimate: $600-800
