A scene from the annual art fair in North Chicago painted in the last year of the artists’ life. A caricature of sorts of local artist friends of Grells that he knew from Tree Studios artist colony and other famous artists. Grell painted Friedl and himself into this painting; can you find them? Is that Macena Barton holding the fish? Is Van Gogh painting at his easel? Grell put the moderns on the left and the primitives on the right in the background!
oil on canvas, signed and dated 1960, titled on verso
