This 1937 holiday card, featuring the artwork of David City's Dale Nichols, was sent by Willa Cather to her friend in Red Cloud, Carrie Miner Sherwood. Always interested in the careers of other Nebraska artists, Cather enclosed a newspaper clipping from the October 18, 1937, Lincoln Evening Star reviewing Nichols’ one-man show at Memorial Hall.
Of note is that Cather crossed off the painting (and card's) title, "The End of the Hunt" and wrote, in pencil, "Nebraska Farm in Winter is my title for it."
Inside Greeting: "ALL GOOD THINGS TO YOU IN THE NEW YEAR!"
From our Carrie Miner Sherwood Collection in the Willa Cather Pioneer Memorial Collection in the Collections and Archives at the National Willa Cather Center.

Dale Nicholas, the son of a farmer, was born on July 13, 1904 in David City, Nebraska and died in 1995. His works are in the collections of the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C., the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Nebraska Art in Kearney, and the Metropolitan Museum of Fine Art in New York, among others. Considered an American Regionalist, an emergent rural style in the 1930s, he is known for his depictions of prairie landscapes and rural scenes in the American Midwest, and with a style evocative of fellow Midwesterners and Regionalists, Grant Wood and Thomas Hart Benton.
