Forrest Bess Re-Appraised

Image coming soon.

Robert Boyd posts a video of a Forrest Bess painting being appraised on PBS's Antiques Roadshow.  The video is notable for the juxtaposition of the appraiser's helpful art historical context and the personal comments by the owner who was a friend of Bess and received the painting as a gift.

In the video the painting's owner describes details from Bess' life and describes Bess' visionary process: "During the day he'd take naps and you'd see him wake up and he'd write something in the book and go back to sleep – then he'd take that and put it on the canvas."
