A fantastic painting of the ship, "St. Louis" by my grandfather, MacIvor Reddie (1899-1966). As you can see, he was a great artist.

Cyrus was one of seven children, born in Bombay to Zoroastrian parents. He went to England in 1946, where he met his wife, Ruth Prawer, and became a fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects. They have three daughters and six grandchildren. They were married for sixty-two years till Ruth passed away in 2013. His architectural practice was very successful in Delhi, India, where he was known for his elegant designs. He was a popular teacher at the Delhi School of Architecture, where he revolutionised the concepts of teaching. He was a fine artist and his pencil drawings of monuments and scenes in Delhi can be seen in his three publications. Later, he moved to New York to be with Ruth and there developed his skills as a painter, capturing scenes from Manhattan. He was fondly known for his wit and humour, not to mention his great generosity, and will be hugely missed by family and friends.

Born in Santa Fé Argentina in 1972, Alejandro Caiazza has Italian roots and was raised in Ciudad Guayana, Venezuela. He was trained in architecture and fine arts at the Jose Maria Vargas University in Caracas, Venezuela. His first one-man art-gallery exhibition as a fine artist was on April 1999 at the “Sala de Arte de Sidor” in Ciudad Guayana, Venezuela. In 2000 Caiazza moved to Paris, France and lived and worked in Paris for 10 years. He spent a period studying at L’École Supérieure Des Beaux-Arts in Paris, attending courses taught by his teacher and mentor, Ouanes Amor. In 2010 he developed a universal language by mixing various traces, signs, figures, and colors, communicating feelings and sensations known to all. By the end of the year, he exhibited at the Lavatoio Contumatiale in Rome, Italy. Caiazza currently works and resides in New York City. He continues creating extraordinary pieces that reflect the artist’s emotions. In his most recent work he demonstrates a strong passion for American pop culture, embracing traditional forms expressed in primary colors, and sometimes adopting a ‘naive’ technique. Alejandro creates whimsical and delightful paintings at first glance, but often there is a deeper, darker side to his work. He creates elementary and childish figures, often cruel, inspired by the drawings of children, which often include criminals, skulls, clowns, and madmen. These silly, wacky characters, lurid and subhuman, are deformed, absurd, and grotesque figures. Many of the paintings are inspired by feelings and daily life. He uses acrylic, oil bar, charcoal, and spray paint and likes to experiment with mixed media on cardboard, canvas, and wood. His style is “art brut” or “neoexpressionism,” with influences such as Jean Dubuffet, Jonathan Meese, Georg Baselitz, William de Kooning, Jean Michel Basquiat, and A.R. Penk.

This is the British print that I had convinced Da Wei Kwo to sell based on a painting he had sold to my mother. I was in England in 1964 and saw it then and because I was just starting my first tour of Europe I did not buy it. Now I am bidding for it. Isn't it adorable? It took me only a life time of 56 years to find it! Date: April 1964 Location: Sutton, England. It is amazing that I even found it in England the first time I went to a department store! I was 20 years old but I suggested it when I was 15.
