Fine Art/Paintings


I manage a inner city thrift store and from time to time receive paintings as a donation.
I recently received some original paintings by different artists. Can you tell me anything that might be helpful about these artists?

H. Gordon
John D. Queen
Suzanne N. Houston

Thank You,
Bob Engel

Dear Robert,

I did some research and could only find information on one of the artists. I located a John Queen listed as a Philadelphia artist. I have included a link to an article on him below.

I had no success with the other two. Only having an initial with a common name such as Gordon makes it nearly impossible to research. I hope this is helpful.

Kind regards,

Fine Art
