    Do you think it will do well on EB?

    His first solo museum exhibit was in 1958 so this is quite an early work.

    That’s really nice to have. And a photo of him holding it!
    There was an artist named Renata Keep, I wonder if that’s who it was for.

    Great find. I hope you find the right venue to sell it. Maybe you can find a Lowell Nesbitt group or forum.

    It came from the estate sale of Reneta Keep, artist from Virginia Beach. She personally bought it from Nesbitt in 1962. The painting was done in 1955 just when Nesbitt graduated of Tyler School Of Art.
    Wonder if that’s him on the photo?
