TitleLetter, 1849 Mar. 12, Evansville, Ind., to George Winter
CreatorHubbell, William
ContributorsWinter, George, 1810-1876
DescriptionHandwritten letter From: W. Hubbell, Evansville, March 12, 1849 To: George Winter ALS, 4 p. (one sheet, folded)
Description ContinuedAcknowledging G.W. letter of February 5. He does not object to a delay in the completion of a miniature G.W. is painting for him. Encourages the "new direction" G.W. plans to take with his painting, of which the "Battle piece" is an example; he thinks it will be lucrative. Encourages him to cater to the public taste rather than worry about artistic purity, which will never make him a living. Implies that G.W. is planning to tailor his Indian paintings to conform more to the public's desire for the wild and exotic. The facts that G.W. has collected will someday be appreciated. G.W.'s report of Logansport, as full of strangers, unlike the old days, interests him, and he would rather preserve the old memories than see the present reality. The state has been miserly in paying G.W. for a painting of the Battle Ground, but it will enhance his reputation.
