    I own a gal named “Dolores” by Hare I can’t seem to find her mentioned any where. I was told that Brown and Bigelow used her as a salesmen’s sample. She might be a litho of Dolores Costello of the movies.

    Nice Picture. Where is his painting of Betsy Ross?

  6. Yes,nice,nice…but using sweetness requires restrain if you want to land within the continent of good taste.Those eyes and mouths are like an equivalent of three cups of sugar each.

    These are great. I acquired an etching of Helen Hayes signed my Hare. On the back of the mat it has his signature again and the indication No. 1. I can’t find any reference to it anywhere. I am wondering if he did it for her (or some commission) and then it never went to her or it was just put away somewhere. Anyone have any info or ideas? I have photos. Thanks!
