Original oil painting on artist board by Sarkis Sarkisian (Armenian-American, born in Turkey, 1909-1977). This painting is signed and dated "61" l.r. It is also signed in red paint verso. It measures 10" by 8" (painting alone) and 18" by 16" in its frame. In excellent condition. Sarkis Sarkisian was born in an Armenian family in Smyrna, Turkey, a country which the Sarkisian fled when the future artist was 13 years of age. They settled in Detroit, Michigan. Sarkis studied at the Detroit Society of Arts and Crafts School. He later became its long-time director. Sarkis Sarkisian is listed in all the usual reference works and has an extensive auction record.
