Original oil painting on canvas by Henry Kallem (American, 1912-1985) offered in fine original condition. This painting measures 16" by 20" ( a bit more in its original strip frame). It is inscribed on the stretcher "Henry Kallem Monhegan" and bears the estate stamp on the stretcher and on the back of the canvas (this painting was purchased from the estate). Kallem did create a series of paintings in this style while living on Monhegan Island. Kallem started his artistic studies in Philadelphia where he was born. He pursued them at the National Academy of Design in New York City and was active in the WPA from 1934 to 1939. He is well exhibited, well listed and highly collected.
