Gus Nall, 40" x 30"
This painting sat in the collection of T.E. Dunne for quite some time until it was donated to my gallery during a fit of apartment cleaning. Interestingly enough, some three or four weeks after receiving the painting I came upon a similar work by Mr. Nall at an antique store for $35. I decided against the purchase because I reasoned that while one Gus Nall was quite nice, two paintings that looked so similar in style might be a bit much. On a return trip to the store two months later I noticed the same piece in a different dealer's booth with a newly marked price of several hundred dollars and the words "Gus Nall - Listed African-American Artist" written on the tag. Listed or not, I still stand by my original contention that one Gus Nall is more than enough.....
