Greetings:

As you may know, there is now another, new group PatrickNagelGroup.com


I'm happy to know that people are downloading the new Nagel Collector's guide, (which is free) and certainly open to your contributions and additions.  That guide should help you identify what is and is not collectible among Nagel lifetime, signed, numbered serigraphs.

I'm currently working on an even more ambitious project: A complete listing of Nagel's 84 canvas pieces.  This is not an easy task, since many of the canvas images were one of a kid, never published or reproduced.  That means I'm not even sure what we're looking for.  Only 38 or so are available to the public via internet and other searches.  Collectors tend to stay anonymous, too. So it could be a long haul until I can gather the other 46 pieces.

If you have any contributions to canvas pieces you think should be included, please feel free to send them along.  The latest INCOMPLETE version will always be available here at this link:

Gotta say, I'm a little disappointed with the canvas list. From what I can see, almost all the pieces are pulled from either the Nagel book or Heritage, and maybe one or two that were offered through the '80s gallery/Just Looking Gallery. Did you see many other canvases when you were researching your book? I know of at least another 10-12 that are locked away in private collections.

That's the whole point.  Who cares where the images come from? We're simply attempting to compile a comprehensive, complete list of them.  If you know of more, please contribute some screen grabs we can add to the list.  I'm sure all Nagel fans and collectors would be appreciative.

Here are two more from what I'm guessing is the now defunct '80s Gallery:

Aside from the pieces in the public domain, how many other canvases did you know the whereabouts of?

Thank you for the help.
Tracking down the original canvases was not within the scope of the book and despite the popularity of the "known" canvases, those purchased by private collectors remain anonymous.  If you have read the book, or know a lot about Nagel's life, you also know that there are not a lot of survivors from the eighties.  Many died, many aged, many simply declined the opportunity to participate.  So any help we can get has to come from the new generation of Nagel collectors and fans.
