James Kazokas contacted me about a painting he won in an auction in Northfield, Massachusetts. It bore the familiar signature of my great grandfather, Hubert Lewis. A bright floral, 12 inches by 16 inches, a little worn from time, has poppies in the bouquet, a flower painted often by Hubert.
Kevin Shaw, from Cleveland, also contacted me to share two pastel landscapes, signed H. Lewis that were handed down to his wife and him from her father. His wife is originally from Pittsburgh, which is probably where her father acquired the pieces.
