Sackett Hope Verrall

Here's a painting
by Sackett Hope Verrall
who was listed
as an
"Associate Member"
of the Palette and Chisel
back when we had our
20th Anniversary exhibition
at the Art Institute of Chicago.

Associate membership,
at that time,
included both
professional artists like Carl Werntz
and art patrons like Martin Ryerson.

Many thanks to Sandi,
the art collector,
who just sent us this image.

there is nothing else
about this artist on the internet,
so I suspect he was not a professional artist.

But he was very good,
wasn't he?

Sackett Hope Verrall was my great-grandfather. I had no idea he had an artistic bent. Can anyone tell me where this painting currently is and are there any other paintings, etc. of his?

Thank you.
