Most of the recent ones were lifted from various auctions or listings. Some of the batch before that came from the substantial collection of a forum member who wishes to remain anonymous. Basically they are just scraps from here and there.Damn fine job, mjp. Where'd you find these?
We own a few pieces of his art (only one of them is up there in the Art section). You can still get it, though, yeah, the prices have gone up. Where did you see some for sale? The prices may seem crazy, but if you can possibly manage it, you may want to take a stab at getting whatever you can. There are thousands of manuscripts out there, tens of thousands of signed books, but in comparison, the art is scarce (if you don't count drawings and paintings in letters)....there's...a couple for sale online (at crazy prices)... How much has survived that isn't a part of the books?
That could also be because there were hundreds of paintings in books that have not been seen for decades. I can imagine that he did repeat himself, but we may have only seen 2 of each run of books...
Nice. What I love about his painting is that he never seems to repeat himself. Each painting is a new exploration, whereas in his doodles and drawings, you do see a lot of repetition. He had no set approach in painting. It's very free.
