Joseph Torch Logo


The logo of the art store around the corner from where we lived on 7th Avenue. Torch on 14th street was a tiny place loaded from floor to ceiling with art supplies. Torch, an independant owner loved artists and talking to them about what they were doing and knew all about art supplies and how to get rare items.


He is probably long forgotten....but I'm saluting him here in behalf of all the artists of that period who were his customers.

  1. My salute as well, even though I didn't know him or his shop.

  2. I actually have a drawing of the interior of Joseph Torch's store, done by book illustrator Edward Caswell, and gifted to Torch:
