This original oil painting on stretched canvas measures 28.5cm by 33cm (about 11 1/4 by 13 inches, not including the simple but detailed wooden frame it sits in.

The subject is an alpine mountain landscape with a Swiss or Bavarian style building and a dome topped church or building beyond. The scene includes snow capped mountains in the distance.

It is signed J. Felsinger in the lower right portion of the painting. Josef Felsinger (1908-1972) is listed on Artprice.com with a history of auction sales.

This painting is executed in a very crisp, well detailed impressionist style.

The colors are vibrant and better looking in person than the photos would indicate. Any white dots on the pictures are the result of flash bounce back and are NOT on the painting itself.

There is a very fine spiderweb pattern of crackling of the canvas from age that does not show up in the photos, but only when the painting is lit from behind.

Overall, this is a very attractive little gem of a painting by a known artist. The buyer will not be disappointed.

It is signed W.E. Rollins in the lower right corner.

It is is excellent condition with the exception of a patched repair with a very small paint loss to the canvas off center right in the area of the tidepool (see enlarged photos of front and rear of repair). This is an outstanding image; even so, this old oil could use a good cleaning to brighten up the colors and a very minor touchup on the old repair.

Warren Eliphalet Rollins (1861-1962) was born in Carson City, Nevada and raised in Northern California. Following his study at the San Francisco School of Design, he traveled throughout the southwest, living with a number of Native American Tribes. He lived and painted in Pasadena, California from 1910-1917, at which time the Santa Fe Railroad Company lured him to Arizona with the offer of a studio on the Grand Canyon. He remained in Arizona for the rest of his life. He has often been called the dean of the Santa Fe and Taos Art colonies, he died in Arizona in 1962.

He is listed in many artist's publications and also online on ArtPrice.com and Askart.com. He is also listed as a WPA artist in Who Was Who In American Art(1985). Many examples of his southwest works have been offered and sold at auctions during the last decade. Very few outstanding examples of his California paintings have come to auction during that period, although a few lesser ones have.
