About

"And wasn't it good for a boy to be Out to old Aunt Mary's" Charcoal and watercolor on artist illustration board, 1900 Initialed and dated lower right: H.C.C. 1900 by the artist (see photo) Original charcoal and watercolor illustration on artist’s board, 1900 From: Jame Witcomb Riley, "Out to Old Aunt Mary’s" Published by Bobbs Merrill Company, Indianapolis, 1904 Illustrated: page 38 in a decorative floral border (see photo) Provenance: Gift of the artist James Whitcomb Riley (1849-1916) Gift of the poet to George Ade (1866-1944), friend of the poet Dr. Mary Jo. Brandt, Indianapolis (1944-2005), noted collector “With his health so poor, he decided to work on a legacy by which to be remembered in Indianapolis. In 1911 he donated land and funds to build a new library on Pennsylvania Avenue. By 1913, with the aid of a cane, Riley began to recover his ability to walk. His inability to write, however, nearly ended his production of poems. George Ade worked with him from 1910 through 1916 to write his last five poems and several short autobiographical sketches as Riley dictated.” (Courtesy of Wikipedia)
