Edgar Allan Poe


Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849), our first American poet of any note, was more importantly to me, the father of the horror genre. This 16 x 22” oil on canvas is, as of this posting, still on consignment for $150 at Mystery and Imagination Bookstore in Glendale, CA, a fan-friendly, family-owned bookstore named after Poe’s most famous collection. It was unveiled there on August 22, ‘09, at Ray Bradbury’s 89th birthday party, and is one of only two paintings in these galleries that have not been sold.
