Retrospect message

"The "Brute' is now in the early stages of putting a retrospective on Robert Loughlin's art. We are looking for interesting found objects, paintings on wood, metal or canvas. If anyone of the Robert Loughlin collectors out there has what they may feel would be a good fit for the show; and would be willing to lend that art for a Mr. Loughlin first ever retrospective, please send a picture (front and back please) with its size. If possible, it would be so nice if some story about a little detail of the paintings background could be brought forth."

Many thanks -- Gary Carlson "The Brute" "The estate of RL & GC"




"Remember the Kinks" by Robert Loughlin - giant oil painting SOLD

Loughlin's "Remember the Kinks" sold on eBay for the amount of $10,700. Below is the seller's listing description:

"Masterpiece measuring 79" by 35 1/2" . Photo taken by Roberts partner Gary Carlson ' the brute ' July 2011 at my estate in Franklin Lakes New Jersey. A work of this size is extremely rare and executed with inimitable skill and genius. Robert was a close friend who was accidently killed Sept 27 2011 while crossing the street near his home in New Jersey. Roberts importance in the art world was reflected in the near half page obituary he received in the New York Times and front page coverage in many national papers. Robert was one of Andy Warhols closest friends and one of only a select few people allowed in his studio. Andy affectionately called Robert the 'chairman' because Robert sold so many chairs to him.Robert defined cool and style with a visionary eye and savant like genius teaching the worlds finest designers and artists what was important and why. His friends and associates are a whos who of the artworld elite.ie warhol, basquiat, haring,scharf etc all whose works set price records worldwide. One could logically conclude that a man of this background of this importance should at least be selling at similar levels. HE WILL BE VERY VERY SOON. I estimate this work being one of a handful in existence will be selling above 20 million in the next 5 to 10 years. A famous story is when Robert first met Warhol he told him he gets stuff he likes { robert was also a world renowned picker} Andy replied 'get me the stuff' Dont miss this opportunity to own the finest work of this world class artist. I know I will regret selling this now but my loss is your gain."
