This is a nice large 18 by 24 sight size oil on canvas by Paul Flegel a listed artist.It seems to be in its original frame which is 26 by 32.The painting is in great original condition. The carved wood 60's frame has a few chips in the thin gesso top coat.Flegel was known for his style of painting on the open canvas with a palette knife which is quite evident in this picture.From the few pictures of his we could find on line this seems to be a much better than normal example of his work. Flegel was born in Russia in 1904 and died in 1978. He spent most of his life in New York but also worked in New Hope Pa. and the coast of Maine. He was commisioned to do pictures for the Queen of England, Princess Grace of Monaco and Golda Meir.His work is starting to become more popular again and this seems like it would be a good addition to any collection of modern American Paintings
