My great aunt recently passed away, and I was given this painting that she made. I know this is probably a wild goose chase, but I would love to figure out who is the subject. [more inside]
We recently found this piece of art, a bronze plaque, at a table sale. It looks like something created by a known artist, their name is on the tip of my brain, but I'm drawing a blank. Does it ring any bells with any of you? [more inside]
I found this rock by some train tracks today. The rock could be from anywhere since the rock beds for the tracks are often laid with rocks shipped in from everywhere. A Google search hasn't been much help yet. Anyone?
Does anyone know what happened with the 10 dollar art mystery? It’s been a while and I can’t find a resolution. There’s the Wiki, but if it has any more information I didn’t see it.
In 2010, the granddaughter of Marthe de Florian died at age 91. An apartment she had kept locked in Paris since 1940 was finally opened and among the items found in the apartment was a gorgeous painting of her grandmother by italian artist Giovanni Boldini. Every article about the discovery focuses on Marthe & Giovanni and the painting. My friends and I are far more interested in the granddaughter... Can you help us find details? [more inside]

It must have been circa September 1995 - January 1996... I saw this book at the art museum book store. I can't recall the artist's name and I have wished that I wrote it down or bought the book ever since.... it was paintings of people working in a quarry like setting and the walls and rocks and boulders had words on them. I remember red... like some of the paintings were done in shades of red (this might be my memory playing tricks on me). Any idea who the artist is? I've never been able to track he/she/it down.
