Jack Meyers print
I have a framed Jack Meyers print --signed J. Meyers. I cannot find a number but on the back is a is typed little saying and then under that is a little round piece of paper that says original painting by Jack Meyers, Metairie, Louisiana. Any help with how old and what this may be worth would be appreciated. Thank you
Here is some information on Jack Meyers that I received from his son, Jack Meyers, Jr. in the 1980's.
Jack R. Meyers
Jack Meyers was a native of New Orleans, La., born in 1930 and died in February, 1994. He earned his B.S. Degree from Southeastern Louisiana University. He subsequently worked as a medical industries sales representative for several years.
He became interested in art early in life, however, he received no formal art training. Although he had worked in most mediums, Meyers chose acrylics as his principal method of expression. For the most part, his ideas came from sketches and photographs made on location, public libraries, and university libraries.
"Art without any influence from yesterday's tradition or concern for tomorrow's needs must indeed reflect an unthinking culture. Life without tradition can only produce art without memory. Perhaps my work may appear out of date to some. It may appear to others that I dwell too much upon the past. I truly believe that living only in the past produces nostalgia, living only in the present produces irresponsibility, living only in the future is impossible, because the future is yet to be. The real art of living, I believe, is blending equally the past, present and concern for the future. Real art should reflect this principle. I trust that my paintings have given pleasure to many people, and this might well be the most important purpose of a painter’s existence."
