Background Nate McClain created this painting in 1997 while at the Art Lofts downtown St. Louis, MO. Nate was 23 years old when he created this artwork.
In 2005, "The Alcoholic" appeared on the cover of the international Hablemos magazine's December 2005 issue. The Hablemos (loosely translated means "Let's Talk") is an international publication produced by the Sedronar, an Argentina State Department agency, and has a readership of over ten thousand Argentineans that includes public agents, ambassadors, doctors, journalists, and scientists. The Sedronar fights narcotraffic and helps Argentineans overcome alcoholism as well as other similar addictions. The Sedronar discovered the Nathan McClain Gallery during an online image search and specifically requested to use "The Alcoholic" for the upcoming Hablemos cover. After confirming the legitimacy of the Sedronar, the Nathan McClain Gallery was honored to fulfill their request as a posthumous honor to Nate's legacy.
