The American
39" X 50" Acrylic Painting on Canvas. (Sold) Set before the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC, this Native American Indian sat by the curbside on October 15, 1969 during the moratorium in protest to the war in Vietnam. Believed to be the largest demonstration in U.S. history, he was among the 250,000 demonstrators in Washington and among the estimated two million protesters nationwide. The acrylic painting on canvas was started in New York in 1970, when the artist was attending the School of Visual Arts. After encountering difficulties in the United States, I brought this painting with me to Montreal. However, because I was unable to provide enough proof of ownership to Canadian officials, I returned to the United States leaving the painting with friends in Montreal. Consequently, the painting was not completed until four years later after it was smuggled back into the United States by a dear Canadian friend, Monica Dorfman. "With deep gratitude, I post the image of this painting as a testament of appreciation to all those who helped me survive this difficult period in American history. The painting was completed in 1974, when the last Americans evacuated Saigon". Matt Schwartz

I am grateful to post this painting mostly as a testament of appreciation to my dear friend, Monica Dorfman, her family, and all those who helped me survive this difficult period in American history.
