  • Lafayette Escadrille Photos - Artist Portraits

    SKU: 17-LFC-00004

    Nine (9) 8 x 10" b&w glossy photos of what appears to be pen and ink drawings of famous aviators.  The pictured photo is of a painting of Victor Chapman.  On the reverse is a stamp "Smithsonian Institution" and a pencilled annotation: "Victor Emmanuel Chapman/by John Elliott (1858-1925)/Gift of Mrs. John Elliott/National Collection of Fine Arts".  The other eight are of James R. McConnell, Kiffin Rockwell, William Thaw, Norman Prince, Georges Thenault, Paul Pavelka, Raoul Lufbery, and Edmond Genet.  All have similar Smithsonian stamps and pencil annotations on the reverse.  These are likely vintage 1950s-60s.  Conditon of all is very good.
