From Irwin Chusid, Jim Flora archivist and editor of our Flora books:
Jim Flora Art LLC has released a limited-edition, archival-quality fine art print of an uncirculated 1963 Jim Flora tempera painting entitled Back to Bellefontaine. Flora was born in Bellefontaine, Logan County, Ohio, in 1914. He lived in the town until 1934, when he enrolled at the Art Academy of Cincinnati.
Only twenty-five (25) prints of Back to Bellefontaine were produced for this edition. Back to Bellefontaine has not previously been reproduced or published.
Some remembrances of the town by the artist are on the Jim Flora blog.
