All Items : Fine Art : Paintings : Watercolor : Pre 1930 item #1417985 (stock #JB04235)
At first glance most would think this a print, but it is guaranteed to be an original drawing. The work on paper, measuring 22" by 18", and 27" by 23" in contemporary gold framing, is signed at lower left in a flowing signature "Petzoldt", followed by "Mchn. 28" (Munich, 1928). The handwriting of the signature and overall nineteenth century appearance of the drawing suggests this could be 1828, but the paper would definitely appear to be of the 20th century...

Engraving with hand coloring, 4 3/4" by 8 3/4" inside the mat, 9 3/4" by 12 3/4" in interesting old framing, the work trimmed on all sides, including the title "The Beverley Shore", after the important nineteenth century American artist JOHN FREDERICK KENSETT (1816-1872). Kensett is famed for his luminist technique and the almost spiritual stillness of some of his coastal landscape paintings, which have exceeded one million dollars at major auctions...
All Items : Fine Art : Paintings : Oil : N. America : American : Pre 1950 item #1417983 (stock #JB01582)
Oil on canvasboard, 16" by 12" (19 1/2" by 15 1/2" as framed), the subject trees in flaming autumn colors along a quiet dirt forest road, signed at lower right "P.L. King", no date but likely circa late 1940's or 1950's. For a time I had thought it possible that this was a work of the noted American impressionist PAUL KING (1867-1947) but I no longer believe that to be the case, so I am offering it as simply an interesting impressionistic landscape...
All Items : Fine Art : Paintings : Watercolor : Pre 1900 item #1417982 (stock #JB04408)
Found in New Hampshire, and bearing the label of a contemporary Portland, Maine frame shop, a watercolor painting of an old barge grounded on the shore of a creek adjacent to a woodland, a small house in the distance. The 11" by 14" work (17 1/2" by 20" framed) is signed at lower left and dated there "80". The signature appears to read "Ranger", as in Henry Ward Ranger (1858-1916), a well-known American artist. This is a possibility but could be difficult to confirm...

Oil on small wood panel that appears to be an old cigar box lid, 8 1/2" by 4 1/2", (10 3/4" by 6 3/4" as framed), signed at lower right "Lily Vosburgh", the subject a church steeple in France, impressionistically rendered trees largely obscuring it. Affixed to the reverse is a typed 20th century label which reads "A small church in the south of France as painted by Lily Vosburgh in the 1930's", and below that "JB" AND "$22.50"...

This is a nicely framed reproduction, circa mid 20th century, of the PIERRE AUGUSTE RENOIR (1841-1919) famous painting "La Fillette a la Gerbe" (Little Girl with Sheaf). She is carrying her sheaf of wheat, although she looks to be more of a child of the privileged rather than a field worker in the tradition of Millet. This is one of Renoir's more popular paintings and it has been reproduced many times...

Engraving on paper, the sheet 16 1/8" by 19" (18" by 20 1/2" as framed), the subject a bewigged magistrate type at his desk, surrounded by a salon of 18th century folk, the title line underneath beginning with "Here Justice Triumphs in his Elbow Chair.......". This is a moralizing work by one of the most famous satirists and social commentators of all time, WILLIAM HOGARTH of England (1697-1764)...

Small oil on canvas laid on board painting of a street scene in Paris, the work somewhat resembling the familiar paintings of A. de Vity. It measures 15" by 11" framed and is not signed. Paintings of Paris streets are ever-popular. A ballpoint pen date on the reverse backing paper (3/24/72) gives some insight into when this painting was created. See other Parisian views in my shop.

This is a fine print of the year 1954 by well listed American printmaker LYND WARD (1905-1985), the title being "Weeding". Measuring 14 1/2" by 8 1/2" inside the mat (22" by 15 3/4" as framed) this print, pencil signed at lower right margin, is a mid-life work by an artist well recognized today especially for his achievements in the graphic arts and illustration art...
All Items : Fine Art : Paintings : Watercolor : Pre 1990 item #1417975 (stock #JB01563)
This is a poetic Asian work, in grayish blues and white, the subject the cone of Mt. Fuji above a cloud deck. The painting measures 14 1/4" by 17" inside the overmat (21 1/2" by 24" as simply framed). The signature at lower left reads Kamemaru and the seal "Kame". I cannot see that this corresponds to a listed artist. The work is in the style of classic Japanese watercolor landscape painting, and is perhaps also inspired by the works of the modern master Yokoyama Taikan...

Oil on canvas painting of a scene in central Paris, including the Galleries Lafayette department store, signed at lower right by listed French artist V. GERNON. This mid 20th century work is painted in an impressionist style. The balanced composition, muted colors and flickering brush strokes make for a very attractive work. Note the many figures and rich architectural detail. Measurements are 24" by 30" (31" by 37" framed)...
All Items : Fine Art : Drawings : Pencil : Pre 1910 item #1417973 (stock #JB01723)
Original very fine, detailed pencil drawing on paper of a seated middle aged gentleman (**NOT A PRINT**!!!!), 17 1/2" by 11" (approximately 25 1/2" by 19" as framed), signed at lower right "K. de Groot", not dated but likely late 19th century. It is hard to believe that this is not a print, the work is so fine and accomplished. Strangely, I can find no artist listing under that name...

A PAIR of paintings on canvas, each featuring hanging game birds after the hunt, each 20" by 16", unframed, each signed by the well-known American western artist HENRY H. CROSS (1837-1918). The use of green painted wood panel background suggests the artist was familiar with the artist William Harnett and his style. Cross was born in New York state and became well known in the 19th century as a painter of portraits of Native American luminaries of the time. He also knew how to paint animals, h...

Oil on canvas, 27" by 30" (33" by 36" as framed), the subject the roiling waves, a headland visible in the distance, signed at lower right and, I think, dated there "40", by well listed American artist and illustrator FREDERIC TELLANDER (1878-1977). This is a good-sized work, offered most definitely in as-is condition. It has suffered from the ravages of time and neglect, there being quite a few losses of paint, showing in photos are white areas, and there is craquelure, unstable areas, and ju...

Lovely antique oil signed at extreme lower right corner by the Dutch master artist JAN JACOB COENRAD SPOHLER (1837-1923), the subject a classic canal in summer, the scene including windmills, boats, houses, churches (Utrecht, Leiden?) and tiny figures. The work measures 8 1/2" by 13 1/2" (10 1/2" by 15 1/2" in older 20th century frame). The work is very typical of his paintings, many of which show ice skaters in the winter. Larger works have reached $40,000 at auction in the Netherlands. Spo...

Pencil signed by the artist at lower right is this contemporary offset color print, 8" by 10" inside the mat, 12 1/4" by 14" in simple light wood frame, the subject a poetic one of mother and daughter on a bench in a leafy setting, the girl reading a book, a picnic basket at right. BARBARA A. WOOD the artist is from Ohio but also has spent considerable time in California, and, I believe, Georgia. Her work, whether in oil or a graphic work, often features studies of figures and families. This ...

Color woodblock on paper, 13 1/4" by 9 1/4" (21" by 17" as framed), pencil signed by the artist at lower right, numbered 143/200 at lower left and titled there "Prayer". Amen's works are most commonly prints, as he was considered a master print maker in woodblock, etching, lithography and silk screen, but he also executed oils and acrylics, in the course of a long career. The subject is a young boy of about bar mitzvah age, holding a prayer book---a rather typical subject for Amen, who general...

Oil on canvas of what would appear to be a domestic family scene, measuring 28" by 31 1/2", unframed, signed at lower left in capital letters "GUYARD". There does not appear to be a listed artist who could be associated with this name, despite the fine skills demonstrated by the artist. I have researched the painting and have concluded that this might be very well be (or, probably is---though I can't be absolutely certain) a painting by the listed French artist PIERRE-EUGENE DUTEURTRE (1911-19...
