Unknown: Howard Fogg print

From: "Bart Brown"

I have a Howard Fogg print and I can't find it anywhere on the internet. I was wondering if you could help me identify it. ... [the logo on the front of the locomotive reads] Missouri Pacific Lines. ... I appreciate any and all info such as date or name of the print. ... Thanks.

The picture is of an Alco FA1 or FA2 freight locomotive built for the Missouri Pacific. I can't identify the picture specifically but, since Fogg worked as an illustrator for Alco during the late 1940s and early 1950s, it was probably made for promotional purposes during that period.

I have seen a large number of Howard Fogg prints over the years. I have one from the Southern and one from the New Haven. Dick Dawson is correct, Howard was employed by Alco for a number of years and he did these paintings. I do not know, but I would not be surprised if the railroad that purchased the diesels would get the original painting. If not, they would at least get copies of the print for promotional purposes.

And probably could be further dated by exploring when the MOP bought these engines.

Begin forwarded message:

From: Chuck Macklin

There is one MoPac print in the Howard Fogg and the Diesel Image book (John Scala, Weekend Chief Publishing, 1987). The image in the book is of another FA, #356, in an A-B-A set on freight. It refers to one other painting of a MoPac FA, as below.

Caption for #356 in the book reads in part:

"This late Mopac Eagle Merchandise Freight watercolor was painted in a vertical format for the cover of the April 1957 issue of Modern Railroads, which showcased the Missouri Pacific. The hotshot is eastbound passing Jefferson City, Missouri, headed for St. Louis.....

"Two other known watercolors were done featuring MoPac ALCOs. One was of an earlier FA freight cab and the other of a PA diesel...."

Attribution for the painting in the book reads:
Missouri Pacific Lines #356
22" x 16" watercolor, 1956
Alco Products Collection

I have 2 framed pieces of art by Howard Fogg. I don't know if they are prints or what. Each measures about 14" by 17.5 inches within the mounting board and wooden frame. Can you tell me if there would be any interest in them? Would they have any value? I'm not sure where they came from. I have had them in my garage for over thirty years or so. In the process of clearing out my garage, I came across these pieces among other framed works and I only kept these two.

I would appreciate any information or direction you can give me as to what I can do with them. I don't want to dispose of them like I did with other clean ups. ...

I have some Howard Fogg prints that I was looking to sell.
Sixteen Transcontinental Railroad prints.

Any idea what is the best option? Price?
Also are museums looking for this type of donation?

Thanks for your help!
