Many people have contacted me asking what their David Baker art is worth, where they can sell them, or where to buy more. Unfortunately, I am not a buyer. I am a videographer and friend of the Baker family. I have learned a lot in the process of making the documentary about David, so I could help to nail the authenticity, the date of the work, and if it's a Vitreous Flux style or not. I am hoping people will find others to talk to about David, his art, or whatever is related on the facebook page that I am administrating. I'd rather not get involved in buying or selling of his work that other people have. However, if you have some of his work you'd like to trade or sell you are welcome to post a photo of it on the facebook page. Or click on the facebook icon at the bottom of the page.
I have one I'd like to sell. It has an interesting story, and you'd get two for the price of one!
The charcoal drawing is from the 1960s or earlier. It is drawn in an experimental Cubist style. The scene is David's livingroom, in the wee hours of the morning when someone was playing on the piano (possibly Dickie Tilton), and someone else was playing bass. A cat in the lower right looks out at the people in the livingroom. This unusual work is an historic piece. It hung in David's livingroom as a kind of room divider for many years. It had another drawing on the other side. It is signed in the lower left. (My photo cut off some of the left side.) The framed piece is 37.5" x 27.5".
Here's the first side:
This page is where you will find a variety of Gallery images, history of David's
gallery, special works from time to time. I'd like to share the two sided, unusual Cubist drawing.
This drawing on the left, is on the other side of the above one. It's on a high quality, heavy drawing or watercolor paper so there is no showing through.
I reframed it at David's Gallery in 2011 so that the top one is showing. It's in a black frame with a white mat, as shown below.
