It’s high time we shared more artwork by Australian illustrator DrFaustusAU (previously featured here), who reimagines movie, comic book and video game titles and characters as book covers rendered in the unmistakable style of Dr. Seuss.
Vincent Price’s relationship with the Albright-Knox Art Gallery dates back to the early 1960s. Many people might not know, but Vincent Price studied art history at Yale University and was an avid art lover and collector. Public access to fine art was important to Price, so it seems fitting that he helped promote the Collection and the benefits of membership at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery.
In honor of the posting of this 1979 video by the Gusto Blog at the Buffalo News (originally posted this morning by Retrontario) in which Price talks about the benefits of becoming a member of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, here are photos from Mr. Price’s visit to the Albright-Knox on October 18, 1963.
