The Dance of the VeilsShelly Dean
I have 4 images that are still in the original folder "The Dance of the Veils Life Studies by Archie Gunn" The images are each of a lady nude with a veil all different.
"The Dance of the Veil"3508, "The Seventh Veil"3509, "The Evening Veil" 3510, & " The Gossamer Veil"3511. I was looking to learn more about these? I would like to frame them and not sure if to leave them on the original portfolio board?

3 ladiesShelly Holley
I have 3 water colors of Archie Gunns. I was so excited to find this site with the personal comments from his own family! I just love the stories. My watercolors came orignally to my family through my great aunt Lorraine Werner. She was a piano teacher and a very lovely lady. After she passed away, they went to my Grandmother. My Grandmother asked my mom if she would like to have them, as they had just sat in Grandmother's closet for years. My Mom said yes, and so they went from Grandmother's closet, to my Mom's closet. A few years later, my Mom asked me if I would like to have them. I immediately fell in love with "the three ladies". They were not framed. Was just the three water colors on the paper laying on cardboard loosely. I had them laying on my shelves for about a year. Then I met my husband in Nov. of the next year. He is a carpenter. When I showed him my three ladies he secretly measured them, and for my first gift from him for Christmas the next month he presented me with my three ladies in beautiful white custom made frames he had built so that I could display them safely and be able to admire them all through out the day. Was the most touching gift he could have given me. As to how my great Aunt Lorraine came to have the pictures, my Grandmother told me that Archie Gunn had done these portraits of a friend of my aunts when they were both very young. Aunt Lorraine had gone with her friend and sat with her while Archie Gunn painted the friend. Grandmother then told me that when Archie Gunn completed the potraits he signed and dated them and gave them to Aunt Lorraines friend as a gift. I can only assume that the friend gave them to Aunt Lorraine or left them to her later. I always love the thought of my aunt and her friend being young and going to sit for the painting, though I have no way to verify if the story is true or not. I enjoy repeating it to other members of my family when they come to visit. Aunt Lorraine was very much loved and it always leaves a smile on my family's faces to envision the story being true as I do.

At the bottom it says "by Florence.Pea.se next to that is says Archie Gunn 1912 with a c in a circle above this name. Is there any way I can find out about this. I would like to know if it is real. Please contact me.
I have a protrait of an American Indian, which I have had for many years. She is done in black and white. I was wondering if there is a value on her? Thank you, Barbara.P>S> I don't want to sell her, just would like to know about her.
Archie GunnTerry Sullivan
Archie was married to my grandmother's sister. They had a home in New York City and had 3 small beach houses in East Rockaway on Long Island. I grew up next to their home on L.I. and have many photos of Archie at family gatherings. He signed his name at family parties and always sketched a small pencil drawing next to it. I have a number of those signiture/drawings. Archie first painted his beautiful wife, and later his daughters, Elaine and Marion. Lots of his posters were stored in the back room of our garage. Don't know what happened to them.
My brother has an original oil, and I had one too, but it was distroyed in a move, 25 years ago. I now collect Archie Gunn items.
