12/15/09 ADDENDOM - Another from Mischa added to E-bay December 2009:



UP FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS THIS ONLY KNOWN COLLEGE CHARCOAL DRAWING FROM LUX INTERIOR, THEN ERICK PURKHISER. THIS WAS DONE BY HIM ON COLLEGE AND IS LISTED ON THE BACK INCLUDING HIS TEACHER AND CLASS NAME. THIS LOOKS TO BE FROM THE YEAR OF 1966 DUE TO THE OTHER INCLUDED ITEMS ARE FROM THAT YEAR AS WELL. THIS WAS ALL OWNED BY LUX BEFORE HE STARTED THE CRAMPS. THIS IS A ONE OF KIND AUCTION AND IS THE LAST PRE CRAMPS AUCTION TO OFFERED BY LUX'S SON MISCHA. ALL OF THESE ITEMS ARE FROM LUX WHEN HE WAS WITH HIS FIRST WIFE JOANNE WAY BEFORE IVY.

they sure seem to reflect Lux's aesthetics and interests. That whole thing about Lux's son is new to me. It's not something that ever got mentioned. If it's true, then it's sad that that dude feels he needs to sell off this stuff on Ebay.

Interesting! He obviously had a thing for redheads, and the first one seems to be a premonition of later photos of he & Ivy. Nice find.

My father is Mischa Shane Graef formally known as Mischa Shane Purkhiser. I am Rachel Nicole Graef, his daughter. These painting are beautiful. They are a reflection of my grandmother, Joanne, Lux's former wife. I am his granddaughter and wish I knew him before he died.

Yes it is true, my father felt betrayed by Erik because he left him when he was 3. I would know, if Erik had no son, I wouldn't be here today.
