About This Piece
The Art
Collectable prints are rare and unique works of art - from original pre-war advertisement posters, to contemporary exhibitions prints, to out-of-print and hard to find gems. Although not signed or numbered like a limited edition, they often appreciate in value over time due to their rarity and age. Because of the unique history of each item, collectable prints may show minor signs of handling, aging, or original print defects. Unless otherwise noted, each print is guaranteed to be in very good condition or better.

The Artist
Kay Ameche, American (1904 - 2005)<br/><br/> <br/>Kay Ameche was an artist sometimes likened to Grandma Moses because she began to paint in her 60s.<br/>Ameche grew up near Chicago, where she was taken out of school at age 8 to help support her large family. After they relocated to Southern California, she earned her high school diploma at night and trained to be a nurse during the day. She worked in Hollywood-area hospitals, often caring for entertainment industry celebrities.<br/><br/>The idea of painting arose when she envisioned a seascape for her wall and could not find exactly what she wanted. The budding painter became a protege of primitive artist Streeter Blair. Her first two paintings sold for $250, and by the early 1990s, they were going for $5,000 to $10,000 each.<br/><br/>Ameche's paintings have been purchased by such buyers as Ronald Reagan, Nelson Rockefeller, George Burns, Katharine Hepburn, Elton John and Robert Ludlum.
