Provenance: The family of the artist
Best known for his many Saturday Evening Post covers, Dohanos had a keen interest in Americana and antiques, and enjoyed working out complex wallpaper and textile designs. This unusual painting is a self-commissioned composition (though then used on the cover of FAM, as shown), probably a spin-off of his Westport emporium design, and contains some of his favorite collectible objects.
