MEASURES: 22" x 16" Unframed. PLEASE WAIT FOR INVOICE!Charles Merrill Mount (1928–1995) was an American artist. Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1928 as Sherman Merrill Suchow, he later changed his name and studied at the Art Students League of New York. He won a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1956 and travelled to Europe where he worked in Italy, France, Britain and Ireland. He returned to the United States in 1969, and worked in New York and Washington, D.C. He specialized in portraits and also produced landscapes and streetscapes in oil and watercolor as well as charcoal drawings. He was interested in art history and published biographies of John Singer Sargent (1955), Gilbert Stuart (1964) and Claude Monet (1966). His career and personal life were marred by untreated bipolar disorder and a controversial later life, including a prison sentence for theft of rare documents. He died in 1995 in Washington, D.C. He is survived by five children from two marriages.Mount was arrested at Goodspeed's Book Shop in Boston, Massachusetts, on August 13, 1987, by the FBI for attempting to sell 158 Civil War documents to Claire Rochefort. These documents had been stolen from the National Archives and Records Administration. Mount was also in possession of additional letters stolen from both the Library of Congress and National Archives, in what is one of the largest rare documents thefts, with the value of the stolen items totalling over $100,000. Mount was initially charged with two counts of interstate transportation of stolen property, with the first count on the Whistler letters from the Library of Congress and the Churchill and James letters from the National Archives. The second count covered 144 of the 158 Civil War documents Mount was attempting to sell to Rochefort. Because of excellent record-keeping by both institutions, including call slips and microfilm versions of the documents, Mount was convicted on March 30, 1989, and was sentenced to eight years in prison------------------- RETURN POLICY DETAILS: PLEASE READ!
