Where Once Greek Gods, 1962, an original watercolor painting by California artist Hardie Gramatky.
Available as a fine art print on Arches watercolor paper. 100% archival, and printed in HD.
"Painted in Delos, Greece, and chosen for an exhibit at the National Academy in 1963 and the New Britain [CT] Museum. Then Dad sold the watercolor to Eric H. Paige from North Tarrytown, NY, the following year and when I tried to find it to borrow for an exhibit, it had disappeared. I couldn't locate Mr. or Mrs. Paige. Serendipitously, in 2008, the painting appears in an auction house and we were able to purchase it. I sent the auction house owner a letter to be sent to the consignor, hoping it was a son or daughter of the Paiges. But I never heard from them and have a suspicion that the letter was never delivered! I'm glad to get this painting back."
