Regular price $14,000.00 Sale

In the mid-1960s Joseph Solman (American, 1909 - 2008) was commissioned to create portraits of the Begg family. This is a portrait of John Begg Sr., the patriarch of the mid-century nuclear family. While all the portraits are stylistically the same, each bears its own color palette, John Sr.'s painting is the brightest of all with a yellow background and his light suit. John Begg Sr. was an artist and graphic designer who worked in the New York City area in the 1950s.
