These three paintings hung in Clown Town from its opening in 1963 until 1966 when bartender Ed Crane informed new owner Tommy Turiace that they were painted by Julian Ritter and were of quite some value. Tommy put the paintings in the office where they stayed until Clown Town closed. The artist, Julian Ritter, came by and looked at the paintings in 1967 and confirmed they were his work while sharing a drink with Tommy.
