The "I Love Lucy" Bedroom Paintings
At least they were lost. In 2006, the male dancer went up for sale on Worthpoint, an online auction sale. The seller claims that his mother not only purchased the painting in an auction in 1961, but also painted the dancers. According to his account, they are painted on thick paper with pastel. Apparently, the frame was used for some of his childhood art which protected the pastel from the elements for years, so it is still in pretty good shape. I've included his description in the sources below.
Here are my requests for you, the reader. If you, by rare chance, know the artist, the current owner, or the location of either painting, please let me know immediately, so I can share this information with the world. I'd love to complete this post, but it seems that the internet has decided not to allow me to finish my quest. Hopefully, you can.
