|Portrait of America (detail), 1933|
Unlike the Rivera mural, other artworks documented in the Juley Collection are not so easy to find. Information may not be readily available about where they may have ended up, or if they even still exist. Aside from those that are destroyed, works can disappear by becoming part of an unknown private collection, or simply by being forgotten about or packed away a la the recent story about several Arthur Pinajian paintings found in a Long Island garage.
So, in my research, I’ve certainly hit a few walls in trying to locate a painting or sculpture. Perhaps I can turn to our blog readers for help?
|John Sloan, Movies, Five Cents, 1907|
