Zooming in on Nelson

Got the Roy Nelson original today! And what a thrill to be holding a piece of artwork by this master of design and brushwork. It's a completely different feeling seeing it for real than seeing it on a screen, but just to give you an idea here are two close ups followed by the entire piece.

I noticed this stamp on the back of the art.

I've never heard of this library before. Does it still exist? Is it filled with original art dating back to the days of Hearst? I can only dram of what once was in that library. Or what still might be in it...
