    I hope he finally found a way to tell his daughter whatever she needed to know. I also hope he delegated the last task!

    Regarding his portraiture, I did not recognize any of his famous subjects at first glance. Even after reading the title, scrolling back up, and saying “Oh yeah. I guess” it was tough.

    This fellow would not be very high up on my list of American Masters. His work looks bizarre and even amateurish to me.

    Which leads me to make one more comment. Sometimes (in my opinion) we mistake a lack of talent for a distinctive artistic style. Could I draw as well as him? Certainly not. However, I bet thousands of art students in this nation could.

    Why is it we shower accolades on artists without artistic greatness in the modern era? Yeah, yeah, eye of the beholder, I know.

    I disagree, I think his work is terrific. I never heard of or saw his work before. thanks for finding it.

  3. Hello! I just purchsed, I believe, is this original Katharine Hepburn oil painting pictured above by Berniece Little. I was told it was purchased at an estate sale, and was one of 3, the others also listed above, Merle Oberon and Miss Bette Davis.Does anyone know the history of these pictures and the artist Berniece Little? Am unsure whether she did the other two, but I am very pleased to have aquired the one of KATE..Thanks very kindly!
    Sincerely ,
