This latest fine was located in the South Bronx. It is a very large realist painting, signed and dated 69.
The painting is vibrantly colored in reds, yellow and orange in it's back ground.
The authors name "Pope" in no really clear.
I am seeking information as to who is the artist, his achievements, etc.
If anyone have any information pertaining to this artist and or artwork, please make contact.
I welcome any and all information pertaining to the image.
Upon further research, I discovered an artist named Gustava Celestine Johnson Pope.
He is a Black American artist, born 1911, know for painting and art education.
He was sponsored by the Smithsonian Institute and known to the Harlem Harmon Foundation.
He is known to have lived in Massachusetts and North Carolina.
A special thanks to all.
