Members of the Sterling Strauser Gallery Committee at East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania have announced the acquisition of “Jill on her Tricycle,” a rare, large-scale painting of the artist’s daughter by the late acclaimed, self-taught artist Sterling Boyd Strauser (1907-1995). This most recent acquisition is significant for a number of reasons from a historical and artistic perspective. Of the thousands of paintings created by Strauser in his lifetime, there were only a few, like “Jill on her Tricycle” that he signed with his full name. The oil on Masonite painting (48” X 36”) is also featured in a catalog of Strauser’s work that was published on the occasion of the presentation of Sterling Strauser, A Modernist Revisited at the Reading Public Museum in Reading, Pa., in November 1999.

“The first spark for a tale about a mentally ill old man’s interaction with zoo animals came from a very close friendship with a schizophrenic man whom I once spotted ‘talking’ to a troop of howler monkeys during our visit to the Houston Zoo,” Broun said.
