Seeking sources for WPA oil paintings : LUSENET : Art Deco Society of Washington : One Thread

I am seeking a gallery or other source for oil paintings from the WPA period. At NY's Modernism show about 5 years ago, there were several examples, with a kind of spiritualistic aura around blue collar/industrial themes (ie., a worker emerging from a manhole reaching skyward, an eerie hitch-hiker). Hopefully, there are more out there....Can you help me find them?? Thank you for any help that you may be able to provide!

I paint copies of artwork, in particular work by the likes of Lempicka and ART Deco Artist of the 20s. If you can't find what you are looking for and would still like the image painted in oils, than contact me,
