New Album posted …

20 Nov

I thought I'd call your attention to the fact that I've just now finished posting the first bit of an album of photos of my dad's paintings … there are something over 100 in this first lot, mostly oils on either canvas or untempered hardboard. After an enthusiastic reception by a photographer in this Community, when she was shown a sample, I decided to post a bunch … the next lot will be pieces on paper …
Have a look; enjoy.

    I really don't know … my Scottish Lassie informs me that he is more well-known in Europe than in the US; she says she found him mentioned in a book she found in the gift shop of the Monet Museum at Giverny, of all places. I must confess that I have never checked for him in European museums, nor would I have any idea how to go about it. I rather doubt that he is there; he seemed to know where each painting he ever made was, and he never mentioned Europe. I am preparing a small number of them to ship to Scotland; perhaps we can start a trend. LOL If you have any suggestions, I must admit that having crowds of museum directors pounding on my door, holding thick wads of $100 bills, would be a pleasant change from my current straitened circumstances.

    Thank you, dear … I appreciate your comments.Originally posted by kentsopera:

    He spent almost his whole life in more-or-less natural surroundings, and he painted what he knew. We lived as close as we could to water, most of the time; the two years in the mountains behind San Diego were a sore trial for us all. And his nudes were invariably "zaftik", as befits any nice, Jewish boy, but usually not "particular", but generic. He was good, but, like me, a really terrible salesman.

    Why stop at wads of 100* bills? ;)I liked the ones where your father used vibrant colours best, regardless the subject. He seemed to have a keen sense for colour combinations.Thanks for sharing.
