History of a Painting - Barber (Set of 4 Prints)

History of a Painting - The Barber Set

 (set of 4 Prints in one frame).

 

One of the framed prints, which became popular was my Barber Set.  I had a lot of Barber Shops purchase the sets for their businesses. Most everyone could identify with the painting, so the set was purchased to hang in many shops around the country.

While at the Festivals, we would assemble the sets with the mat and frame color of their choice and which way they wanted it to hang.  Horizontal or vertical.
