What you need to know about dating
Stephen Longstreet's art.
In the later years, Stephen Longstreet dated his art on the time period the art represented and not the date the work was created.
Art that states a year prior to 1939, was done much later.
Henri Weiner did not become Stephen Longstreet until 1939. Hence, there would be no "STEPHEN LONGSTREET" created art prior to 1939.
Rule of thumb: If it looks recent, it is recent.

If it is missing a circle with SL inside it is very likely 1970s-1980s. The graphical "Jazz A-Z" book has art mostly from the 1980s. It states 1930s, 1920s and 1910 (the artist would then be 3 years of age). This got past a few museum curators. If you have a collage dated 1950s or earlier it was most likely done in 1970s or 1980s.

There IS "HENRI WEINER" art from the late 1920s and 1930s and it will be signed either "Henri" or "He."
