New York 22, N. Y. November 17, 1961 Dear Mr. Feigen, It was very flattering to read your note of November 14th, asking me to identify the authorship of a painting. I am truly at a loss - for I have no opinion. It is evidently inspired by an antique "Greek" probably bas-relief and I am wondering whether it was not the work of some artist for a school competition - but of what nationality and of what period escape me. Were you able to identify the relief or perhaps its plaster cast, you might be able to get closer to a solution. I am disappointed not to be of any greater help. With all good wishes, Sincerely yours, Germain Seligman P. S. Herewith I am returning the photograph Mr. Richard Feigen Richard Feigen Gallery 53 East Division Street Chicago 10, Illinois Encl.
