Adrian was more than a designer!

    A friend of mine who collects Adrian suits and dresses sent me a copy of this pic. Adrian apparently did these in the 1940s -- I had no idea he was a painter as well. My friend actually found this painting on ebay a few years ago! Adrian's signature wasn't deciphered quite correctly by the seller, but she recognized it and bought it for a reasonable price.

    Anyway, not clothing, but interesting none-the-less.

    The painting is called "The Rain Pool"

  2. Gawd, what a great find--and I love the painting! It has a touch of a Dali feeling to it, too, doesn't it?

  3. Wow! That's really something. Love the colors and shading on this. I learn something new every day here it seems.

    That is just so cool. I love that painting. The small dimensions against the big sky. The skinny trees or plants towering above the village! That really is cool!

    How interesting! I actually agree it's got a Dali feeling for me, too. That is a great piece of vintage trivia to file in my mind. ;)

    All I can think is what a really cool thing to bring to the Antiques Roadshow. hehehe

    Gotta love that hard to decipher Adrian signature. It sometimes makes for great bargains!

    Not too surprising if you think about it though. Creative people tend to flow into all types of artsy things.

    Funny Steph - the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw that painting was "surreal" !

    Neat painting.
