Marvin Lane was a painter from Chicago, who painted architectural designs. Most of his work was done in the 1950s in Chicago. He moved to San Luis Obispo in the 1960s and lead a reclusive lifestyle at the Wineman Hotel. The two places he frequented in town were the Art Center and Graham’s Art Store.
This painting was donated by Jim Carll, who worked at Graham’s Art Store, because of Marvin Lane’s devotion to the Art Center.
