    A Lionel Barrymore Watercolor Painting, 1953. Rendered on canvas, depicting a Middle Eastern female slave auction, signed in the lower right corner "Lionel Barrymore '53," back with two labels noting how piece was displayed at the "Art of Celebrities" exhibit at the "Festival of Arts" in "Laguna Beach, California" from "July 17 -- August 15, 1954" -- an exhibit curated by Edward G. Robinson and his wife who were lifelong art collectors; sadly, Barrymore would have exactly three months to live after this exhibit ended, dying of a heart attack on November 15, 1954.
