Unsigned oil on paper laid on cardboard depicting the harbor with people in the foreground, the buildings on the right and the breakwater in the middle ground and the harbor with a ship and the far arm of land in the distance.

An oil on Masonite painting of a red roofed mill with the mill pond in the foreground and a barn against a hill in the distance. Painted in an unusual palette that includes lavender. I have been unable to find a listing for the artist. In a new frame. 10 by 12 inches, with frame 12.5 by 14.5 inches.

Condition: excellent.

Though it is difficult to date, I suspect it is from the middle of the 20th century and most likely to be American.

Allison, Margaret Prosser American born 1913. Oil on canvas of a steam train in the foreground passing through a town with trees in full summer leaf. The unusual perspective and the color of the buildings are very effective. Ms. Allison taught at the University of Delaware during WW II and I suspect this painting dates from that period. Size 20 by 25 inches and with frame 23 ½ by 29 inches.

An oil on canvas in a naive style of a line of deer walking along a gentle hill toward the top of a larger hill with the sunset and distant view of the other side of the valley. The painting was found in Shenandoah Valley though no record of, “A. Taylor” has been found. The tone of the painting is warm. While there are no give away clues as to the age between the late 19th or the early 20th century, it has a feel of being in the earlier part of that range rather than the later...
