    Lyons Matrix Gallery, Austin;
    Acquired by the present owner from the above, 1993.

    Bert Long, a Houston native, works have been exhibited with acclaim at the Metropolitan Museum of Fine Art, New York, the Dallas Museum of Fine Art, and the Museum of Fine Art, Houston. Long's style has been associated with both folk art and Surrealism utilizing literary and historical invocations. Steven P. Henry writes, "This fusion of modernist elements in the tradition of Surrealism and even Dadaism with earthy, simplistic folk art defines and focuses Long's art." Long was known for his huge heart, great talent, and as his friend James Surls says, "the gall of a mule."
