Harley (née Harley Forrest Francis) was a professional artist for six decades, spending his final 30 years in the North Bay/Sonoma Area. His passing left me, his son Tristan Francis, with well over 2000 of his original works, presenting his evolution from early influences (Beckmann; Matisse) into his own distinctive style. The estate contains pieces from nearly all of his major series: abstracts, still lifes, figurative works (including many overtly homosexual themed works) and collage. Harley much preferred the creative aspects of his profession to sales and never achieved broad recognition despite national and international sales. His work has been placed in collections with the Getty Foundation, the Smithsonian and the Kinsey Institute, among others. For more information, please contact Tristan: tristan.d.francis@gmail.com
