I just loved your stories of this artist and the photos of his paintings. I have a painting by Van Eno entitled MUSIC, I will be posting a photo soon for everyone to see. I always thought it was by a artist named Vanen guess not, the o looked like a punctuation mark and there was no space between the n&e. But when I found your web site i know i had found the artist of my painting.

From the mid 70's to 1984 I owned a weekend house in Key West on Love Lane. I had seen some of Van's work in a shop in Ft. Lauderdale (I remember that the first piece I saw was titled Unicorn Flamingo). In Key West I began to buy his works from my friend Richard Heyman. I bought at both of his galleries. I have 8 paintings and a number of pincle drawings. Prior to Fantasy Fest one year, Richard was doing a window in the second gallery with works by Van. Van had done a large water color female figure in an orential robe. It was just for the window to attract attention but I fell in love with it and asked to buy it. Richard talked to Van who said that it was not worth selling and would not last because it was done on brown butcher paper. He did not wish to sell it. I begged and Van said that he would sell it to me for $150 because I was a good friend and customer of Richard's. I had the painting framed by the Kennedy gallery and it hangs at the end of my hall to this day. I am glad to find this web site as I have not been able to find much on the Web about the work of Van.

I'm Vans neice. I wish that I had more time to get to know him before he was gone. His work has always made such a great impact on me and I love going through his portfolio and photos of him. I'm very happy to see his memory carried on! Thank you.

As a conch, I knew him from his day's of being transplanted in KW, partied with him and was there until the end. I have two water colors and one of his Easter Eggs which he did in 1977... a gift to my late mother. Thanks for keeping the memory alive and well!

I remember witnessing Van Eno's creative genius one particular afternoon in his apartment studio on White Street in Key West. He was intensely focused on his creation. I was fortunate to have known this very beautiful and talented man. In my possession is one of Van's brilliant abstract splatter pieces which I will always cherish. Joe Dietrich Chicago, IL

Thanks Honey for contributing Van's birthday and your experience. Stephen as for the chairs I believe I know them. They are circa 1950's wooden with rounded backs (2 slats). The Doctor lived on Varella St in a compound and shared a pool with two other units. As far as I know Van did not paint a lot of furniture which probably adds to their value. Maybe $10K for insurance purposes and Please do not try to match the drapes :)
