The painting of Sonata by Ditlef was purchased by Turner mfg. co in Chicago Illinois. The painting was purchased soley for the purpose of publishing prints.
At the time Turner Mfg. was the largest producer of framed pictures. The painting was reproduced in many sizes. These reproductions were sold framed continually until Turner mfg. was retired by its owner sometime during the eighties.
The painting was sold to Turner Mfg. as an original and included all publication rights. Any additional paintings on the market are cosidered copies of the original.
I represented Turner as a sales representative for 25 years and purchased the painting when Turner closed down. It is currently held by my daughter. All the time Turner owned the painting it was helg in a vault.
