    Question Paintings by Frank Sinatra

    Recently my wife bought a painting at an estate sale. I was wondering if Nancy or Tina could help me with a question.
    Did your dad ever sign any of his paintings as Artanis? This is a large 3'x3' modernist painting similar to ones in the book A Man and His Art. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
    Tom

    I remember an episode of the old Dick Van Dyke show where they bought a painting of a clown signed by Artanis. They got the idea that someone may have painted the clown over a valuable painting and scraped the clown off. When they had the uncovered painting appraised, it was worthless but the appraiser told them the original painting by Artanis was painted by Frank Sinatra. Maybe it is kind of an urban legend of sorts.
