Sterling Studios Museum
Julius Ullman

My Grandmother started the art gallery in Fredrick & Nelsons Department Store in Seattle, WA. As a result she got to know many artists, and we always had nice original art (paintings, sketches, colored pencil work, etc) around. One of these artists, Julius Ullman left his working portfolio to my grandmother when he died, and I used to love to pour through there, reading the old newspaper clippings he had cut out, looking at the pictures that he used as reference, and the sketches (in various stages of completion) for larger works. But one of my favorite pieces was this set of pointing hands. When my grandmother passed away, this portfolio was given to me.
