From Fraenkel Gallery: “The Family Album of Lucybelle Crater is the best-known body of Ralph Eugene Meatyard’s work. At once comic and tragic, grotesque and beautiful, the series of 64 images features Meatyard's wife, Madelyn, in a hag’s Halloween mask together in each with a different friend or relative in a transparent mask. Original copies of this small but seminal work now sell for upwards of $500.”
