Beschreibung:

Hometown Main Street: Gouache on board, signed ("Harper Goff") to lower right, matted and framed; Goff portrait: Gouache on paper, inscribed lower left: "To Harper and Flossie / So gratefully we are / A Brenet / 58," double-matted. Goff's Hometown Main Street is a long, narrow painting depicting a quintessential American small-town street, with houses, a grocery, a movie theater, drugstore, church, school, and playground. Goff loved this kind of sweet Americana, and the painting appears to have been inspired by his creative work on Disneyland's Main Street. This painting was prominently displayed in Goff's home, as evidenced by the portrait of him and his wife Flossie by Albert Brenet, which features the painting behind them. In the portrait, Goff noticeably sports the beard he grew for his cameo role in The Vikings. Hometown Main Street: overall: 16 x 45 in.; within mat: 10 x 39.5 in.; Goff portrait: overall: 32 x 40 in.; within mat: 25.5 x 34 in.
