PRICE IS NEGOTIABLE / PLEASE MAKE ME AN OFFER! ORIGINAL OIL ON CANVAS PAINTING.Guaranteed to be 100% Authentic! I was able to get in touch with Joseph Wallace King's widow, Deborah King, and through her I have learned that this painting was actually featured at Joseph Wallace King's first exhibition in Paris in 1958 at the Bernheim-Jeune Dauberville.
That was King's first solo exhibition, which basically launched his long career as "Vinciata". This piece is also pictured in King's autobiography book, "There Ain't No Rags In Beverly Hills", shown on page 26. The photo shows this painting sitting on the couch in a large room filled with paintings, while King was selecting pieces to be shown at a Hammer Galleries exhibition in New York, around 1964.
Estimated Age: Mid 1950's. Size of Artwork: 12" x 16". Framed Size: 18" x 22".
Condition: I personally would say that the Painting is in Very Good condition, considering it's age. It does show some minor paint loss in a few small areas where the painting meets up with the frame. It also shows some natural color fading, light scratches, light scuffs, all of which should be completely expected for a piece of this age.The frame is in "old/used" condition, with natural wear, blemishes, scratches, nicks, etc.. To find original paintings by this artist! A majority of his original work is owned by private collectors, or held in the "Joseph Wallace King collection of art" at Elon University, in North Carolina.
