Sam J. Schlappich has done more to brighten the faded fame of a dead friend than he has to promote his own artistic reputation. What little is known of Schlappich's work beyond his home state of Florida is due mostly to first prizes he won for wood carvings at ihe -Chicago and New York world fairs, and he didn't seek When Schlappich talks of his friend Winton, he speaks of a man who would have been happier living in the da-ys of Velaquez than the 20th century. There was no kingly court to protect the genius of Winton, and his idealized interpretations found no takers in the market of realism. To his friend Schlappich, it seemed that the coroner's report en Winton's death creed in that it did not list the cause as "inability to adjust to the world in which he lived." A huge m u r a l of the "Sailing of those honors. Florida officials a s k - j f h e Armanda," which, Winton may cd the Lake Worth artist to permit have r n e a n t to be his masterpiece. his carvings to be exhibited. Two of those blue-ribbon carvings -- "Hanna, the Incense Bringer" and "Maddona of the Jungle" -- are on 'exhibit now in Lake Worth library. These statuettes in wood were loaned by the 74- year-old artist, who acquired his nickname, 'The Deacon," because his father had been a minister and he himself had been educated for the ministry. was stored away carelessly by the impoverished artist, along with many of his other paintings. All were severely damaged and would be lost to a generally unappreciative world, had it not been for the enormous job of restoration done by Schlappich following his friend's death. 'The Deacon" recalled: "There were 22 holes alone in the mural . . . some big enough you could put a broom through restore 'The Sailing of the Armada" and many tedious months more to bring back to their former state the several smaller paintings by Winton which now adorn other walls in the Lake Worth library. Included is one self-portrait of Winton. The restoration of the painting is so accurately done that only an expert can tell where tie brush was wielded by Schlappich and not the dead m a n . The library purchased the Winton paintings now in its possession, but the wood carvings by Schlappich appear there by loan of the artist. "It got to the point so many came to the house to see those carvings that we couldn't eat a meal without interruption." . The 135-member Lake Worth Ar League, of which "The Deacon" is secretary, meets in the librarj building, and officials of the H brary long had wanted to exhibit the carvings--so an arrangement was made for the loan.

It took Schlappich two months to LAYAWAY ONE NOW! THEN BULOVA ance to seek greater recognition! for his own artistic endeavors is his reluctance to part with what he has created. Generally, each is a unique production, upon svhich he has expended considerable research. "Hannu, the Incense Bringer" evolves from a story of an African slave who supposedly completed a hazardous journey to bring rare spices and incense to embalm a dead Pharoah, and thereby earned his freedom. "The Madonna of the Jungle" emerged under the artist's hands only after his brain had puzzled over a story which also came from the A f r i c a n jungles, Schlappich explained: "I carved the figure after learning of a social custom of the jungle. Boys and girls up to the age of fertility were herded together When a girl became pregnant, no body knew who the father was, and the girl went alone into the jungle to give birth to the child." i · i _ i L\- 11 i i .
