Blog post by historian Gaylen Solomon Corbett
In 2017, I began scanning the hundreds of slides documenting the artwork created by my father, artist David Solomon. Four years later, the process is ongoing and taking more shape.
Solomon did not keep written records of his paintings, exhibitions or achievements, but he did keep a good photographic record. To date, I have documented over 600 paintings from slides, photographs, CD-Roms and digital photos. They have been compiled into a database with as much information for each painting as I can locate. This blog will serve as a record of the cataloging process from here forward.
