Grossmann, Walter. TURCOS (TURKS). Gouache in colors, on sketchbook paper, circa 1914-16. unsigned, but titled lower right. 6 3/4 x 7 3/4 inches. Light surface scratches and wrinkling to the paper, still in very good condition; nicely framed. This drawing was part of an archive of this artist's works, and has an affinity to other, signed pieces. From the materials in the archive we have concluded that Walter Grossman was born in Germany, studied art, served in the German army in World War I, eventually came to America and became a physician in Connecticut. We do not believe that he had a professional career as an artist, but his work shows an appreciation for the art movements of the early 20th Century.
