The Story

For The Art of Sherlock Holmes Andy created a fantastic painting from a story 'The Adventure of the Smith-Mortimer Succession' from author Daniel D Victor. Dan is a retired high school teacher who lives with his wife in his native Los Angeles. His doctoral dissertation, The Muckraker and the Dandy: The Conflicting Personae of David Graham Phillips, led to the creation of the Sherlock Holmes pastiche The Seventh Bullet. Originally published by St. Martin's Press, it was reprinted by Titan Books, UK and later translated into Russian. His fascination with Sherlock Holmes and American literature has led to his MX series entitled “Sherlock Holmes and the American Literati” in which Holmes and Watson encounter such writers as Raymond Chandler, Stephen Crane, Samuel Clemens, and Jack London. More recently, Victor has expanded his literary approach to Holmes’ adventures by including writers from more varied backgrounds like Guy de Maupassant, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Fyodor Dostoyevsky.  Victor is currently working on a novel about Holmes and American journalist Richard Harding Davis.

The painting has been converted into an authenticated print by The Conan Doyle Estate.

There are lots of offers on books, art prints and merchandise on the Art Of Sherlock Holmes Page.
