Sounds like you are cleaning out your old police files.
Sounds as though you may know than I might know , and are trying to wrap it up and finally solve it.
Your post is not quite clear, please re-phrase.

Hi! I don't know if this string is still active, but if it is, I recently bought a beautiful watercolor with the Birmingham Gallery John McKinney sticker on the back. I can't read the signature exactly but it looks like S. Pobinshiak, S. Pobinskak, or something like that. Any idea what the artist's name actually is? It's a painting of a farm house on a hill, and it's gorgeous. Thanks.

I found two works with Birmingham Gallery/John McKinney label- one is a poster for a Matisse show in France the other is a Paul Klee serigraph- any one know about these- I live far from MI.

I'd be interested in knowing when and where you heard this. Nothing like that ever appeared in the newspapers. Do you have a name? Or if there is one or two perps?
I worked as a jeweler for Peggy De Salle in her gallery for a year and a half, 1958, and 1959. John was not an artist, but did all the beautiful framing, He worked in the basement and I had a workbench is the upstairs bathroom. We were pretty close. I did not see him after I left , but was horrified to learn of his murder in his new gallery. I went to his funereal. I have often thought about him because of the framing he did for me and the techniques of framing that he taught to my father. I often wondered if the person who murdered him was ever caught. I found this thread just by searching his name.

He was a really nice person and when I think about it now so many years later, it makes me sad that no one ever paid for that crime.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
