    Night Gallery painting by Tom Wright for episode: "Room For One Less". (Universal, 1969-1973) Vintage original painting accomplished in acrylics on 23 x 23 in. masonite artist's board. The painter, Thomas J. Wright, is an American television and film director, artist, and set designer. Wright created all of the paintings (excluding 3-for the pilot episode) seen in this macabre series, which opened each show with the legendary Rod Serling as docent to a sinister gallery of artworks. In the anthology episodes, Serling would single out and describe a particular painting, which corresponded to the creepy segment that followed. Wright painted brilliant pieces across the spectrum of style from portraiture to abstract works. This painting was created for the 2nd Season segment, "Room for One Less" Written and Directed by Jack Laird. The painting features a cluster of male faces but with one blank silhouette as if a single face has been excised from the painting. Unsigned. Unexamined out of frame. Exhibiting age, production wear and handling. In vintage very good condition.
