On October 24, Jim Richards’ exhibit of sketches from Hemingway’s Cuba opened on the campus of Arkansas State University. As a part of the event, we began an auction on one of the pieces which will be open through noon on October 30th. This watercolor depicts the fortress at Cojimar, Cuba, and is part of a series depicting scenes from the Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum’s 2014 trip entitled Hemingway’s Cuba. The proceeds of this auction go to benefit the Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum. To bid on this work, please click here.

The Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum and Educational Center in Piggott, Arkansas includes a barn studio associated with Ernest Hemingway and the family home of his second wife, Pauline Pfeiffer. Pauline’s parents, Paul and Mary Pfeiffer, were prominent citizens of Northeast Arkansas and owned more than 60,000 acres of land. During the 1930s the barn was converted to a studio to give Hemingway privacy for writing while visiting Piggott. Portions of one of his most famous novels, A Farewell to Arms, and several short stories were written in this studio. Both the home and the barn studio were named to the National Historic Register in 1982. The properties have been renovated, focusing on the 1930s era. Areas of emphasis for the Museum and Educational Center include literature of the period, 1930s world events, agriculture, family lifestyles and¬†relationships, and development of Northeast Arkansas during the Depression and New Deal eras.
