Winter Drawing by André Smith
We have now finished digitizing correspondence files, which included post cards, letters, and personal documents. In addition to written notes and letters, we have also uncovered hand-made cards with drawings and poems from some of the Prendergasts’ closest friends. Some of the most interesting and amusing of these cards are from artist friends Charles Hovey Pepper and André Smith.
