6.2: Works of Art , circa 1835, 1913-1968, undated

The first group of records in this subseries consists of artwork by Edith Gregor Halpert. Items include small oil paintings (four landscapes and one study); watercolors (a figure study and two landscapes); drawings (figure studies in pencil, thirteen undated and two dated 1922); a crayon and pencil drawing entitled "Rosalie" from 1913); and advertising work (six rough layouts in ink and pencil).
The remainder of the subseries contains works by other artists. Among these are calligraphy, drawings, a pastel, paintings, and prints.
