"house of the rising sun" Within the past three years a fantastic treasure has been discovered in the dark yet beautiful French Quarter district of New Orleans. This treasure is not that of gold . . . instead it is one of incredible cultural value. When the song "House of the Rising Sun" was originally written this famous brothel was believed to be only a mythical one. Until one day just a couple of years ago an electrical contractor was running new wiring through the walls of an old boarding house on St. Louis St. The "House of The Rising Sun is one of our newest limited edition releases. You do remember the song don′t you? Anyone who has ever tried to play guitar would have learned to play this piece of music. Well, when Eric Burdon of the Animals wrote this song he borrowed some of the lyrics from an old 18th century folk song. At the time that Eric′s song was released back in the 1960s no one really knew if the "House of The Rising Sun" was an actual Orlean's brothel or if it was simply a myth. Well, guess what? About three years ago a prominent lawyer in New Orleans was renovating an old boarding house that was left to her by her late husband. As they were running new wires through the old walls a contractor shone his flashlight into a small hole that he had made in the wall and noticed a large white fluted pillar that had been cocooned beneath the drywall. Shining his light upwards he could make out what seemed to be the glimmer of gold reflecting back to him. As they tore down more and more old walls and ceilings, artwork began to appear and it was soon very apparent what this house had once been used for. This was the world′s most famous brothel hidden right in the middle of the Old French Quarter of New Orleans... the actual one that was legendary for its slaves, voodoo and sin.
Artists and art publishing companies sometimes add small images to a print. This added pictorial comment is called a remark and is traditionally spelled in French as "remarque". Remarques can add exceptional value to an art-print. Some prints have been known to increase in values hundreds and even thousands of dollars more than the same print without. When purchased with Suchiu Art pieces these images are always in full color and are totally hand painted by Ronald Suchiu and it is common for them to include a personalized note, phrase or even a hidden message. Because of the small size and his attention to detail Ron restricts his remarque production to less than 200 units per year. Most remarques are rarely as complex as Suchiu's and are generally very quickly drawn tiny pencil sketches without color. When purchasing an art print with a remarque buyers should "BEWARE!" that some prints and art pieces have what appears to be a remarque on them. The image may be printed on at the time that the print was made. These offer no added collectible value. Remarque is a small original sketch, drawing or painting done by the artist in the margin of the finished print.

Eric Burdon was soon invited to view the house that he had sung about so many years before and Ron was invited to visit the house because of the painting he was about to do. Knowing that the house would never be opened to the public, Ron has been offered the privilege of showing the world things that they would otherwise never be allowed to see. In his painting Ron has portrayed the back and the front of this famous house. But the story is just beginning "The Real Voodoo Curse" is a free short story written by SUCHIU about his bizarre experience with the House of the Rising Sun ... believe it or not... it's a true story!
