Carter, Pruett

Print
Price: $11,250.00

Description: Painting a model in a Hawaiian marina

Provenance: The information that I have is that Carter gave this to a relative at the time it was painted and that it's been handed down through that line ever since.

Comment: This came to me like a bolt out of the blue. I'll say that in my line of work sometimes it pays to answer the cell phone, even if you don't recognize the phone number. There’s a good story behind this… Carter gave it to a relative and it has been passed down through the family for the past 80-some years… as such it’s never been touched… no cleaning, revarnishing, reframing or anything else. It’s a testimony to previous owners that it’s in as good shape as it is…Carter's abilities remain fresh and vibrant to this day.

Price: $11,250 (+ $200 domestic shipping)
