Just as putting pen to paper to create a line in a drawing is an artistic act, so is writing a letter.
Pen to Paper, a selection from the Smithsonian’s Archives of American Art, reveals the beauty and intimacy of the craft of letter writing. From casually jotted notes to elaborately decorated epistles, Pen to Paper explores the handwriting of celebrated artists such as Mary Cassatt, Frederic Edwin Church, Howard Finster, Winslow Homer, Ray Johnson, Georgia O’Keeffe, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Motherwell, Isamu Noguchi, Maxfield Parrish, Edward Weston, and many others.
