Carlo of Hollywood Stallion Partner

As you may be aware, we’re major collectors of Carlo of Hollywood watercolors.  One of our favorite pieces is our large Stallion watercolor.

This is one of the two smaller ones that would have been part of this 3 piece set. When Carlo watercolor paintings were sold, they were usually in pairs or sets of three. In the case of this stallion set, there is one large one and two smaller ones. Usually, one of the smaller ones would be almost a duplicate of the larger one.

This one has some character, but it may just be dirt under the glass. I’ll have to take it apart and clean it up!

We just love the bold imagery of these pieces.  We of course, love the forced perspective/angular frames.

We decided to hang them above our fireplace.

Hopefully, one day we’ll locate the other smaller Carlo.

As always, we hope to enjoy these for years to come.

Rare Large Tiger Carlo of Hollywood Watercolor

One of the great things about having this blog is that it is a great way to connect with folks who are trying to sell items we collect. In this instance a gentleman from Redding California reached out to us and asked if we would be interested in a jungle cat Carlo.

As you might guess, we are always interested in jungle cat Carlos. This Carlo makes a complete 3 piece set as they were originally sold. We already had the two smaller ones on the right.

This Carlo is the largest in our collection now. We used to own a ballerina Carlo that must have been over 5ft wide but we sold it.

With the black background it really makes the greens and oranges jump out!
