Here's a neat little catalog from a well-known at the time art school in nyc. The thing that's special about this is that it was the first year Arshile Gorky was a teacher there. The painting of his shown here is one he did of a Rodin sculpture. I believe that this image in this catalog is the first reproduction of a Gorky known. I think it makes this little catalog rare and special. I have no idea how to put a value on it though. I have quite a few old art catalogs - some are pretty special, i think.

    this really is a special catalog! mainly because of the first image published of an Arshile Gorky. John Singer Sargent and Daniel Chester French ran the school which began operation just 4 yrs before this catalog was released. Norman Rockwell and Stuart Davis were students there in 1927.
