This painter sold only one painting during his lifetime. The painting was called The Red Vineyard at Arles and was sold in 1890; sadly, the same year the artist committed suicide. Scroll down to see the answer (or question!). 
Next meeting is Wednesday, April 21

MAA Zoom meeting, April 21, 7 - 9 pm

Jan McCollum's dioramas - an amazing tour of a unique art form.
Years ago, ​Jan McCollum helped a friend build a dollhouse, and his passion for creating small scale pieces began. He became fascinated with the never‑ending possibilities. Jan has combined this interest in dioramas (miniature scale three-dimensional models) and his love for railroads (both replicas and the real ones!). With this, Jan created a number of train and railroad themed dioramas. He has built models for collectors, enthusiasts and hobbyists – especially railroad bridges. Jan was commissioned to build some model bridges for the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburg for a large diorama.
He has probably made at least 50 original models and countless kits over 30 years. During the meeting, we will see several of Jan’s creations including a 1/4" scale diorama of Mansfield Depot set in the 1950's - where he grew up. Be sure to tune in to this fascinating demonstration!
