Wow! Nice piece! Considering the two Tyree velvets currently on Ebay are being sold for $1000 & $2000 respectively, I'd say you got a good deal!

Thanks, Chris. Wow, I had no idea they were that expensive! Note the $150.00 was the original asking price back in 1964...I paid less than that, though how much I'd rather not say, just in case I decide to sell it someday. This is probably one of the nicest detailed velvets I have seen.

For now, she will sit alongside my other velvets until I complete my garage/bar conversion.

Hey psycho great find - If you decide to sell put me on the list at that looks just filipino enough to really piss off my wife.

Greetings,

May I ask how much were you able to buy these Ben Alano paintings. I am interested to buy some pieces locally and your price reference would be very helpful.

Good day then. . .

Hi all,
I'm delighted to have found fellow Tiki Freaks! I recently bought a pair of gorgeous velvet paintings of some Polynesian maidens by an artist named Ben Alano. Some research into velvet painting turned up lots on Edgar Leeteg (very cool), but precious little on Mr. Alano. I know that he is from the Phillipines. The seller told me that the paintings were being sold on behalf of a widow whose husband was in the service and brought the paintings back sometime in the late 1940's or early 1950's.

Any info would be greatly appreciated!

I have been finding quite a few velvets lately, but the quality of most of them has been poor.

I picked this one up today...







I have named this one "Last Call".

Now granted, this does not scream tiki, but I have seen places that infuse indigenous people amongst the tried and true Polynesian velvets and this one has exceptional skill applied to it. Not sure of the origin of the individual in the painting, nor am I able to read the signature of the artist. I am able to make out the date "1964" and the detail of the frame leads me to believe this wasn't an inexpensive purchase originally.

Can anyone make out the signature or do you know anything about the artist? I probably won't keep this, but I couldn't leave where it was.

Thanks,

PTD

Thanks Freddie,

I believe you are correct and it looks like I might have found a new artist to collect. Amazing what you find if you look long enough!

Wow! The ones listed are going for $1,100.00?? I am stunned!

How odd - the nude figure study is sold but none of the Secretaries-General of the United Nations are.

Nothing odd about that?? I would have never looked twice. Now the nude study...that's another story!

How about some shots of the other 11. Not sure of the artist of the one you showed, any signature?

I would really like to see the Leetegs!

Hey, I'm here, perhaps either too jealous or too overwhelmed to respond? How did you come about so many amazing scores anyway? Having them is one thing, but the story behind how you found them is another.

Do tell? And "thank you" for posting those pictures, they are truly great renditions of a velvet master!
