An oil painting on masonite titled Once Upon a Midnite Beery by outsider artist William K.C. Truschel (Pittsburgh; 20th/21st-century). To the right a man stands dumfounded as an alien being walks out of his outhouse and another in front of him walks away with a woman in hand. Their spaceship sits along the farm landscape. Signed to the lower right, ‘KCT 4,’ and inscribed to the verso with the title. Presented with a wood box frame.
Truschel was an unknown, self-taught painter from Bradford Woods near Pittsburgh. He painted from 1962-1967 and his work was never shown during his lifetime. His paintings often displayed themes of man’s shortcomings. His work was exhibited at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts in 2002.
