Ernest Hemingway with his longtime friend, painter Waldo Peirce, in the Baghdad Room of the Tucson Inn in 1959.
Hemingway was acknowledged as one of the world's great writers. But Peirce was also very well known in his time. He was sometimes called the "American Renoir."
Peirce was an ambulance driver for the French army and Hemingway was an ambulance driver in Italy during WWI. Peirce met Hemingway in Paris in 1927. Peirce's sister Ada live part of the year in Tucson, thus the invitation for his friend. This visit was supposedly the last time the two met in person before Hemingway committed suicide in Idaho in 1961.
