    [Mount Rushmore]. Gutzon Borglum: Two Postcards Signed. Borglum (1867-1941), an American-born artist and sculptor, is best remembered for creating the huge granite sculpture of Mount Rushmore in South Dakota and the Confederate Memorial (the largest bas relief in the world) on Stone Mountain in Georgia. Here, he signs two postcards. The first, measuring 5.5" x 3.5", shows the studio of Borglum, who stands atop a partial model of the Mount Rushmore monument. Borglum has signed near the lower right corner. The second, also 5.5" x 3.5", shows "Mt. Rushmore Nat'l. Memorial . . . from studio ΒΌ mile across the valley." The sculpture is only partially complete. Borglum has signed across the middle of the photograph. Both cards are noted "Spring 1936" in blue ink on the verso. Both are fine.
