    Woody Guthrie Painting with Inscription. One of the most influential and prolific of American folk musicians, Woody Guthrie was also an accomplished painter, as evidenced by this piece titled "Pressed In," depicting a snowbound cabin. A cut-out space in the back area of the frame reveals a poignant inscription by Guthrie to a friend: "Hello Nick: These are two awful cold pictures for such a warm friend -- was Florida very much like this? I never been there. Woody Guthrie 1-4-42 New York City." The artwork is in great condition, with the lower right corner torn loose but still present, and is matted and framed to an overall size of 18.5" x 16.5". A unique item and extremely rare.
