Summer vacation research mission

If you remember earlier in the year, I picked up a fabulous sculpture at a vacant property and discovered she was an original piece.  Little could be found online but I do know the artist was a WPA artist and replaced a sculpture in the capital, was known as a bronze medalist and died in 1990.  I also found there are at least 2 other ladies like mine out there.  Well, I am happy to report that I just scheduled an appointment to view all records including catalog of works from Bruno Mankowski, housed in the Archieves of American Art, Washington DC.  The stop is being worked into a little vacation we are planning!  There are many free resources available to research items and this is the second time an art museum has housed something that I will be perusing.  Looking forward to learning more about this kneeling nude, as she is referred to.

My chairish listings are now live if you need shipping for the turquoise chair set.  They will arrange the shipper.  I cannot offer as cheap in that market, but I still feel I have this set priced under value.  It is totally fabulous!  Find the listings here: chairish.com/shop/madmodworldvintage  

Lots on the move as summer heats up so if you are eyeing something snap it up!  My diamond chair just found a home.  I will be inquiring about another in the area soon.  ✌🏼️.   My Heywood restorations are coming along but I keep getting sidetracked packing things for shipping and of course between my kid's swim schedule and my band rehearsals and practices, we are crazy busy this summer.  Here's a picture of the stain coming along.  I am ready for top coat and then need to sand the legs.  

 

 All stained.  Ready for top coats!
