This original oil painting on stretched canvas and stretcher boards measures 15 by 30 inches, not including the split bamboo frame that surrounds it.

It was painted and signed, lower right, by Aubrey Leech.

Aubrey Leech was known as a New York lamp designer of motion lamps in the early 20th century and is specifically associated with the Econolite Jr. models.

These rotating and painted lamps were very popular from 1920 -1960 and even have had a resurgence of collecting interest today.

This original painting is in very good condition with the exception of a few very small scuffs to the canvas, causing a minor amount of paint loss ( easily restoreable).

This painting should be of interest to any serious lamp collector, especially one who collects the type of lamps that Aubrey Leech designed. The fact that the subject of the painting is also a lamp or lantern can be considered an added bonus.

This is one of two similar paintings by the same artist that we are currently offering. A discount of 25% is available if both paintings are purchased at the same time. They are close enough in style, content and size to look like a matched pair.

This original old oil painting on heavy canvas measures 25 inches by 30 inches (image only) and 30 x 36 inches framed .

It is unsigned.

It is in excellent condition, with an overall crackle to the surface as should be expected from a painting between 180-220 years old .

Portraits of this type were very expensive at the time, so this would have been a wealthy or important person of the period.

The level of detail in the face is outstanding, so this was very likely painted by an accomplished artist, unlike the numerous folk artist painters who produced the two dimensional portraits so collectible (and expensive) today.

It is painted in the style of David Siqueros or other Mexican Muralist painters.".

The subject is an intense woman. One name for the woman comes to mind but we are not allowed to mention it without suffering the wrath (and possible lawsuits) of overly protective name/copyright owners (One name that comes to mind would have the initials, FK).

It measures 24 by 32 inches, unframed.

It is signed, Josephine E. Hyde in the lower left corner of the canvas. It is also stamped "OTIS" & "HYDE" on the cross braces on the reverse side of the painting. Otis Hyde was Josephine's husband and a very well known artist in his own right. It would appear that Josephine "borrowed" some of her husband's art supplies for her own use.

The subject is a still life wth a small Japanese figure seated on a table with an oriental carpet, with a green pitcher and a Chinese porcelain charger.

The painting is in excellent condition. It has a few tiny scuff marks near the signature that can be easily touched up.

It is painted in a broad pallette of colors: toned down by both time and grime. It could use a good cleaning to make the already strong colors even more vivid and bright.

This is a museum quality, oil painting by one of the most renown Australian artists of the 19th-20th centuries.

Julian Rossi Ashton is listed in many published artists biographical references. His works are held by many national museums throughout the world. One museum in Australia (The AG in New South Wales ) has 17 of his paintings in their permanent collection. Many of his accomplishments are listed in the artist biography below. He also has auction estimates and records for his truly exceptional works that range up into six figures.

Earlier this year(2010), an Australian auction house sold a tiny(6 x 9 inches) and somewhat similar oil painting for $18,000.00 including added costs. this works out to about $275.00 per square inch. If we used a similar or comparable measure for evaluating our early, signed and titled work, we would have to ask over $100,000.00 for it. Every painting is a one of a kind entity and although we believe that our painting is actually better, That is only one small criteria that we used to determine it's value. _____________________________________________________________________

Artist Biography : Julian Rossi Ashton was an influential portrait and landscape artist, and teacher known for his vigorous support of the Australian Impressionist Heidelberg School to which his authority has been both powerful and extensive.

Ashton attended the West London School of Art and the Academie Julian in Paris. He arrived in Australia in 1878 when he was invited to Melbourne by newspaper owner David Syme to work as an illustrator for the Illustrated Australian News. Due to creative differences with the editorial staff, he was forced to resign and transfer to the Australasian Sketcher. When Edmund Smith of the Howard Shipping Line offered Ashton a free trip to Sydney in 1883 he began working as an illustrator for The Picturesque Atlas of Australia, and regularly contributed to the Sydney Bulletin Magazine.

Working in both oil paint and watercolor, Ashton used landscapes, portraits and figure composition as subjects in his works which were effectively complemented by his poignant style of precise draftsmanship and delicate atmospheric effects.

His artistic skills proved to help him greatly when teaching at the Art Society of New South Wales from 1892 to 1896 when as a teacher he stressed the importance of accuracy in drawing and the plein air style.

His influence over the Australian art world attracted a wide circle of followers including Charles Conder, Alfred James Daplyn and Albert Henry Fullwood, who often accompanied him to paint in the picturesque Hawkesbury River Region in New South Wales.

Upon completion of one of his most well-known works, Evening, Merri Creek (1882; Sydney, A.G. NSW) he claimed to have accomplished the first plein air landscape in Australia. His works were outstanding examples of the desolate majesty of the Australian landscape.

In 1887 Julian Ashton became President of the Art Society of New South Wales. He used his position to vigorously campaign for the cause of Australian art. Later, as a trustee of the Art Gallery of New South Wales he helped emerging Australian artists of the Impressionist or Heidelberg School. The decision to keep a permanent collection of these works owes much to Ashton’s influence. As a trustee he declared that not less than 500 pounds be spent annually on the purchase of Australian Art. He also encouraged Government purchases which made possible the NSW Society of Artists’ Traveling Scholarship and the foundation of the Education Department Gallery in Sydney in 1913.

Ashton organized the first overseas exhibition of Australian art which helped the artists of the Heidelberg School to be recognized as significant contributors to the international art world.

Ashton also established the Sydney Art School in 1896, later renamed the Julian Ashton Art School. This institution, since it's inception, has been a center of activity for many aspiring young artists. With such prominent artists as William Dobell, John Passmore, John Olsen and Brett Whiteley among those who attended, the art school became famous to generations of students and continues its rich heritage in educating art students today.

A highly regarded gentleman of Australian art until his death in 1942 Ashton continued to push for the cause of Australian Art in which his influence is still strongly felt today.____ http://www.artgallery.nsw.gov.au/collection/works/?q=Julian+Ashton&sort_by=relevance
