Original Painting “All Fur Coat and No Knickers” Neighborhood Scene, Signed


Out of stock


An original mixed media painting by Nathalie Kalbach, signed in the lower right.

“All Fur Coat and No Knickers” is an original painting made with spray paint, acrylic paint, gouache, collage, and markers on canvas. Nathalie was inspired by her Strolls through the Hood in Jersey City for this mixed media painting, and specifically a building that was used to cold store fur coats in the summer months for the people in the neighborhood (glad that’s not needed anymore). Nowadays there is a restaurant in the building but the story intrigued Nat so she investigated it a bit. She found that a 1932 issue of The Jewish Standard featured an advertisement for a company called Kriegel Furriers offering “cold fur storage” at the address, with a storage rate of 1% of the value of each item with a minimum charge of $2. Those were different times for sure. Nat captures the history of the building through layers and collage, hinting at the location’s many reincarnations over the years through her use of a patchwork of different colors, patterns, and architectural details.
