Featuring fine country Americana from the collection of the late Thomas Hannan and his widow, Al-ison, formerly of Guilford, VT. Tom’s enthusiasm for collecting Americana began in the 1960s and over the years placed many important items in museum collections. Tom’s acute eye for art began when he
studied abstract painting with Hans Hofmann from 1950-53. He had a studio and exhibited in New York City. He was a founding member of the artist run James Gallery in 1954. He was also an award-winning graphic designer and designed jazz album covers for Prestige, Blue Note and Columbia Re-cords during the height of the bebop era in the 1950s. To compliment this collection we have selected other choice items from local estates and collections.
