Inspired by the Paul Thomas Anderson film The Master, I've decided to part with a family heirloom I've had stashed away in the back of the kitchen pantry for decades-a painting by an unknown artist of The Pancake Master. The painting is accompanied by a copy of the classic self-help tombe The Pancake Master, and is personally inscribed by The Pancake Master himself. The inscription reads 'Be The Pancake' and is made out to someone named 'Freddie.'
The portrait is a very handsomely sized 24 by 30 inch stretched canvas. It seems to be painted in acrylic.
A copy of the thrift store classic we are all so familiar with...Yes YOU! THE PANCAKE MASTER. The Secret Science of Controlling One's Own Breakfast.
The book itself is in excellent shape. The cover seems to be custom printed on a durable sheet of canvas. The back cover sports a photo of the painting!
How these items fell into my hands I cannot say.
This large canvas painting of The Master is stapled in the back and painted black around the edge, so it may be displayed effectively as-is, although I would think it would benefit tremendously from a frame which communicated boardroom and hungry.
