“If Christine’s parents had embraced her talent, there might be existing works from her childhood, but this was not to be. Fearing that Christine would steal her brother’s spotlight as the family artist, Christine’s mother, Rosemary, forbade Christine to draw at home.”
I learned at an early age that most human dealings are about recovering Lost Prestige. When I read the Bible for the first time in 1987, I got the core message. Jesus is the Parodical Son returning to his place of birth in order to right a great injustice – and wrong! He reads from Isiah, and his folks people – go nuts – and try to throw him off a cliff! They falsely identify Joseph as his father – but the Jews got that one all wrong – and lose their God to Roman and Greek converts. Oops!
What went wrong – here! Joseph is the epitome of Lost Prestige. His wife Mary gets to brag on his son – till kingdom come! Good Ol Joe is regulated to the background as is Melba’s second husband Joe Wilkins. In this amazing photograph, we see a question mark that guesses – is this Joe? Study this article on bragging rights, because there is a battle going on over this in the photo below.
When a partner of Robert Brevoort Buck sold our family history to an outsider, he made a judgement, a ruling, that a family member was unfit to reord the Presco Family History that has to be SEIZED in order to PAY OFF CREDITORS. Sydney Morris has complete confidence in Stacey Pierrot hiring a ghost writer with monies that the Heirs will eventually realize. What is important is to FIX the waning interest in Rosamond’s hack commercial work. This is the real tragedy here – that began in 1987 when no one wanted the four images produced for the Family Art Partnership by Vic&Vic and Christine Rosamond. I had come down from the North for my annual visit, and Captain Vic was all in tizzy because his idea to market Rosamond’s Art via American Express cards, was not working. Half my family was going to lose Melba’s Windfall. Reluctantly my opinion was sought.
“Produce a coffee table book of Christine’s work.”
‘But, aren’t we giving away Rosamond images -for free? The idea here – is to make money!”
“Oh shoot! Darn! I forgot. Never mind.”
Eventually MY IDEA was accepted, but I had to be divorced from all The Family Art lest I want……SOME MONEY! Well, I don’t deserve any money because I helped my mother oppress Christine’s artistic genius she owned when she snuck into the closet in the girl’s room to render masterful works of art – when she was three and half!
Study the Family Photo. Vicki looks to be around three and a half. Did she ever catch her older sister – slipping into their shared closet with a flashlight? Did Rosamond slip a mind-numbing drug into Vicki’s cereal in order to prevent her from blurting out the truth.
“Guess what? My big sister did a amazing pencil drawing of a horse that rivals the horse that Leonardo did!”
The basis for my lawsuit will be how Buck and Morris ASSUMED the loyal fans and collectors of Rosamond Prints – WERE COMPLETE IDIOTS – and were not insulted! How many were mothers – who loved to brag about their children – and hoped they would be as gifted as Rosamond. Why not author a lie – saying Rosemary was very proud of her achievements and encouraged her – all the way! So did her older brother!
“Ahhhhhhhh! How nice! And they got sober together? What a miracle!”
Focus in on The Trinity…..Christine, Rosemary, and John. Why are our images standing out. Even in black and white we look – enhanced! Why? According to the second ghost writer, who did a coffee book thing, Rosemary ONLY WANTS ME to be a world famous artist. The million dollar question is, when did I WANT TO BE a world famous artist? Don’t I get a say-so? I appear to be eleven in this photo. I did not decide to become an artist till a year later. I was looking at being a architect at this time.
The other real question, is, how did lynch know my mother only wanted ME to be famous? And, here’s the BONUS QUESTION…..why wouldn’t any mother want BOTH HER CHILDREN to be famous – especially her daughter/ Do you see it? Do you see it? Why does Pierrot approve of The Mother of a World Famous Artist – being disqualified and disowned from THE SUCCESS? Forget about me! Lynch says Rosemary knew her daughter was doing fine art – at home – and only allowed her to paint at school? Did Rosemary keep this a big secret – from me – lest I feel too much pressure to succeed? Or, did the knowledge I was crushing my sister’s creativity – too – make me feel very artsy?
Morris and Buck sold a world famous art gallery located in Carmel to a non-artist – who got to STRUT ABOUT AND BRAG! Stacey Pierrot was invited to civic cultural events. Her blessing – was sought! She knew nothing about art. Did she ever write a poem?
In reading the STELLAR VITAS of board members of the Buck Foundation, I consider how my life would be transformed is I could say I was the owner of the Rosamond Gallery – or at least – THE GENERAL MANAGER! The goal was to make money and increase the waning interest in Rosamond’s work – that included images of my nephew. Imagine if a couple fly in from Monte Carlo on a Lear Jet. Entering the gallery, they tell me they collect Rosamond’s.
“Can you tell us more about Rosamond. There is so little information!’
“This is your lucky day! I am John, her brother. My mother said I was Christine’s John who “prepared her way.” Get it?”
“Oh by God! Yes! CHRIST-INE!”
“We’ll take a dozen!”
“You choose which ones you think are best for us! I want to tell my friends Rosamond’s Brother personally – CHOSE THESE ONES!”
Why does Melba look so concerned in the photo above? It’s because she lost much prestige when she fell in love with Viola, and then had a son by a famous gambler. I do not think she was told the Stuttmeister Dead was moved to Colma. Melba grabbed as much prestige as she could. She was stingy with the truth she helped raise Jackie Jensen ‘The Golden Boy’. Rosamond could have done a series of Jackies. What about me?
Jackie went to Oakland High School with my father. He and Zoe had a drinking and drug problem which should be of some interest to Alcohol Justice. I am the only artist who did a image of Christine – and have plans for another!
I never got a dime from Rosamond’s Art. Never touched a penny. There is something very wrong about this. But then, there is something – so right! I kept my integrity. I resisted temptation – just like Jesus!
Presdient: Royal Rosamond Press
“In Mr. Sydney Morris’s Report of the Administration he says on page 4 line 10;
“Petitioner hired Stacey Pierrot, who had been assistant manager of the gallery during Decedent’s lifetime, to run the gallery and prepare and execute a marketing plan. The gallery was run by the estate until March 1996 when the gallery was sold to Ms. Pierrot through a contract approved by this Court. During the time that the estate operated the gallery, aggressive marketing efforts were made in an attempt to stir interest in Decedent’s work and increase the potential market for her work. In spite of these efforts, interest in Decedent’s work continued to wane.”
On page six, Mr. Morris explains why there was a delay in the closing of the estate;
“By September 2000, however, plans were underway for a biography of Decedent, which Petitioner hoped might create interest in her work. The book was published in 2002. Although the book did not spur the hoped-for interest in Decedent’s life and work, efforts continued to market the concept of a screenplay based upon Decedent’s life. Petitioner hoping that this might be brought to fruition, elected to keep the estate open. However, it is the Petitioner’s belief the likelihood of an increased interest in Decedents work is negligible, and the time has come to close the estate.”
THE BEGINNING: Oakland, California
If Christine’s parents had embraced her talent, there might be existing works from her childhood, but this was not to be. Fearing that Christine would steal her brother’s spotlight as the family artist, Christine’s mother, Rosemary, forbade Christine to draw at home. The only time she could express herself was at school or in her closet, by flashlight, when everyone else was asleep. Though we don’t have images to prove it, Christine’s kindergarten teacher has said that, by age five, Christine was already drawing with adult skill. She can remember Christine’s pictures of animals having near perfect detail and perspective.
In addition to oppressing Christine artistically, Rosemary also dominated Christine with physical violence. Trying to support four children with only a high school education and little help from her alcoholic husband, Rosemary was often enraged. She took this rage out on Christine and Christine’s earliest known works reflect it. In Teenage Drawing II, her subject is reticent and withdrawn. In Teenage Drawing III, the woman looks shocked and angry.
