Mike Verbal was for many years Milford Zornes' art dealer. Besides being a well established dealer with an impressive gallery featuring California painters
active from the 1930s to 1960s, Mike is an art collector and the founder of Claremont Fine Arts. Mike and the artist were good friends and Mike would drive Milford to Utah and back for exhibitions, etc. Among other events in Milford's life, Mike was influential in helping Milford sell the old Maynard Dixon cabin and return to Claremont to find a new home as Milford's eyesight deteriorated. His input and perspective to our film have been invaluable.
