Larry Connatser

Posted Friday, September 23 by CAG •

John from Printers Row in Chicago sent us this photo of a painting he's had in storage for a few years. It's a large painting on board measuring 48" x 48". It's signed "Connatser 1968 #608" on the back. He was curious about the artist and would like some more information.
