From a Shotgun House to a Mansion on a Hill
Title: From a Shotgun House to a Mansion on a Hill
Painted in 1984, Miss Alice shares a succinct visual of the meteoric rise of Elvis Presley whom she knew in his younger days. The piece captures, in the span of three years, how Elvis’ success in the music business enabled his family to move from their Lauderdale Court public housing to the Graceland mansion and giving Cadillacs to family and friends alike.
Miss Alice did not receive a Cadillac but she sure was happy for him.
Painting was originally purchased by Dr. Whiteside in Pontotoc, Mississippi and acquired for the Museum by Tim Moseley and Mike and Joan Krawcheck in 2005.
Available print is 10×16 and will arrive unmatted in cardboard tube.
Original is currently on display at the Museum.
