Answer C. Carson is Actually Japanise, I met him in about 1989. We purchased our art at a "art party" like you would purchase Tuperware. We took a couple of paintings o…ut to Jameson Galleries in Redlands, Ca. I believe, And had him sign them ( he would sign in Japanise only). He did not speak english. He paints himself into some of his paintings portraing himself as American. Like Hargrove, in the 80's they painted in the Norman Rockwell Style. Kids playing, old cars, and old country settings. ( I own aboubt 20 Lithographs) some limiteds from both Carson and Hargrove. My search for C. Carson is what brought me here. Hope this helps a little! C. Carson is a Korean artist who has been living in the U.S. for almost 20 years, currently in Roselle, IL. Many of his paintings were sold in the late 1980s and the early 1990s (which include the limited editions) although he has painted some more since then. Here are several pictures I've been able to find which represent his various styles of paintings. I've thrown these pictures together onto a website (it may take 30 seconds or so to load up the pictures): www.cob.tamucc.edu/tklaus/CCarson.htm
I worked in Brooklyn in the late seventies delivering oxygen for the Holmes medical company and Carson Peck Hospital was on my route. The place was scary and looked like somet…hing from a slasher movie series back then. The lobby had wonderful stained glass and marble everywhere. We accessed the building from the loading dock and rolled the 200 lb. oxygen tanks into an old fashioned fright elevator with a gate you closed and a power handle to make the thing ascend. The wards were filled with REALLY REALLY old people back then all dressed in white (it was a nursing home then) The nurses still wore starched white uniforms and it really seemed like a forgotten planet in the middle of Brooklyn. I will tell you the grounds were beautiful with real oak and elm trees on the property. The Hospital building was in the middle of the property on a small hill, all brick and granite. I was always amazed that no smart boy developer hadn't grabbed it up or that the Hassidic community hadn't bought the property. If I ever had to move back to Brooklyn with 75 million dollars I would buy that property. .............................................................................................................. From Mike Conway January 4, 2012 When the nursing home closed, it became a Kosher Hotel which was not successful. The building was demolished. The spacious property now includes a girl's yeshiva and town houses. BTW, the hospital was built in 1906. Peck was a newspaper publisher.
Yes, he is. He currently lives in Roselle, IL.
You probably know that it was in Brooklyn New York. I will try and find out where in Brooklyn. It was probably near Flatbush. Carson C Peck Memorial Hospital was on Alban…y Ave. It was on the corner of Crown St. on a small hill, if memory serves. Not quite. It actually was on Crown St. between Albany and Troy Avenues. Including its grounds, it occupied the entire block.
