Acquired from Howard Finster at Paradise Gardens in Summerville, Georgia. I met Howard there and at statewide art festivals approximately a dozen times. R.E.M (who I also met several times in Atlanta and saw in concert many times) filmed their video Radio Free Europe at Paradise Gardens—Howard makes a brief appearance near its conclusion.
Howard Finster’s (1916–2001) work is in numerous museums including: The Georgia Museum of Art, Athens; The High Museum of Art, Atlanta; The Philadelphia Museum of Art; and the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C.
