Question
Do you know of a deceised artist by the name of Rustom Vicaji.  A friend of mine has two paintings by him and is trying to find information about him and also about his friend, wife or sister called Dorothy Vicaji.  He once maintained an apartment in the Blackstone Hotel in Chicago while also residing on the northshore.  

Answer
Dear Carl, Very, very little information on your artist.
Ruston Vicaji exhibited three watercolors at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1925: #462 Sunset on the Lido, #463 Landing Stage, Lido, Venice, #464 On the Lake.
That's all I could find. No info on a Dorothy.
Cordially,
Dan
