All Items : Fine Art : Paintings : Oil : Europe : Italian : Pre 1960 item #1419572 (stock #JB02417)
This was once a beautiful late 1950's period example of Italian abstract art, executed by the listed artist, from Venice, Italy, GIOVANNI GIULIANI (1893-1965). Unfortunately due to careless storage by one or many owners (it was exposed to moisture), combined with the artist's choice of materials, it is now a restorer's special, worthy of conservation. I have received a quote of $400 to have it relined so that it can safely travel...
All Items : Fine Art : Paintings : Oil : N. America : American : Pre 1930 item #1419571 (stock #JB02435)
Oil on canvas extensive mountain and trees landscape laid on board, 8" by 10" (10 1/2" by 12 1/2" framed), unsigned, circa late 1920's to mid 1930's. I am certain that this is by a listed artist but sadly there's just no hint as to who created this. The scene could be western, or eastern; hard to tell. It was found in Southern California. I would lean towards it being a western scene...
All Items : Fine Art : Paintings : Oil : Europe : French : Pre 2000 item #1419570 (stock #JB02430)
Oil on canvas extensive landscape of trees, a body of water, hills and distant structures, 24" by 36" (31" by 43" in gold frame), signed at lower left "Emile Bovard". I suspect this to be a pen name for a talented artist as I see no listing for an Emile Bovard. The painting was likely executed in the 1970's or 1980's I would judge, from the materials and technique...
All Items : Fine Art : Paintings : Watercolor : Pre 1970 item #1419569 (stock #JB02428)
This is an unframed watercolor painting on heavy watercolor paper, the sheet 15 1/2" by 22, the subject an mansard-roofed old 19th century house in a winter landscape, signed at lower left by a Los Angeles area artist of note, Ann Murdoch (nee Sanguinetti). Murdoch is not strictly "listed" but, a living artist in her 70's, now residing in the Los Angeles area, she has a long history in fine art, stretching back to the Village Art Show in New York, the New Hope area of Pennsylvania, and Chicago...
All Items : Fine Art : Paintings : Watercolor : Pre 1900 item #1419566 (stock #JB02392)
Watercolor painting of a lake and scenic mountains, 6" by 8 1/2" (10" by 12" in simple framing with no mat), apparently unsigned, circa mid 19th century, likely English. The gentleman from whom I purchased this makes regular trips to England and brings back drawings and paintings which he sells, so, that is why I am fairly confident that this is indeed English. The work needs a mat at least although frame could be retained...
All Items : Fine Art : Drawings : Pen : Pre 1800 item #1419564 (stock #JB02364)
Circa 18th century ink on paper European drawing, 11 1/4" by 16 1/2" inside the inner framing enclosure, 24 1/2" by 29 1/2" as framed, the subject a coastal village with small boat landing, the tiny figures going about their lives on shore and in the boats, and a classic old sailing ship just making it into the image at left, signed in the lower left corner "Jac. A__". The drawing is on laid paper that was laid down on a board...
All Items : Fine Art : Paintings : Watercolor : Pre 1910 item #1419563 (stock #JB02362)
Watercolor on heavy paper landscape with house on a moor at sunset, a distant hill at left and blooming white wildflowers in the foreground, measuring 8 3/4" by 11 1/4" inside the mat, 17" by 20" in a simple old wood frame, and signed with initials that look to me like "R.E.M."---but this is just a guess. The piece likely was created in the last years of the nineteenth or early years of the 20th century. The shape of the house suggests to me an English rather than American origin...

Large (36" by 36") unframed painting of a green chair in an office interior, unsigned, but by a Los Angeles area artist of note, Ann Murdoch (nee Sanguinetti).

Original unframed etching on paper, 8 1/8" by 12 3/8" inside the mat (the sheet 10" by 14"), signed in the plate and dated there 42, and pencil signed in the nearby lower right margin by the noted American printmaker LUIGI LUCIONI (1900-1988). **ONE OF SEVERAL PRINTS BY THE ARTIST IN MY SHOP**, this is no doubt a Vermont landscape scene, as Lucioni's prints largely deal with the classic mountain scenery, barns and farms of that rural state...
All Items : Fine Art : Mixed Media : Pre 1960 item #1419558 (stock #JB02338)
Monotype on paper (where the artist "draws" the image on a sheet of glass, after which the glass plate is very carefully pressed against paper in order to produce an image), 5 3/8" by 7 7/8" (the image), the unframed sheet 7 3/4" by 9 1/2", signed in pencil at lower right margin by listed American artist MARION GRAY TRAVER (1892-1964). This a landscape in perhaps early spring or late fall, with muted pastel colors making for a harmonious and pleasing image...

Hughes was born and died in Los Angeles but in between she spent much time in the Provincetown art colony on Cape Cod...

All Items : Fine Art : Paintings : Oil : N. America : American : Pre 1900 item #1419553 (stock #JB02287)
Coastal seascape painting on pebbly surface old gray art board, likely the California coast but possibly Maine, circa early twentieth century, unsigned, measuring 7" by 17" (14 1/2" by 25" in its interesting blackish with reddish design frame). The work and framing is very presentable as-is, with just very slight wear to the frame...
All Items : Fine Art : Paintings : Pastel : Pre 1910 item #1419552 (stock #JB02285)
Pastel on paper drawing of an attractive young blue-eyed, red-haired girl in white blouse with aqua bandana, apparently unsigned, 18 1/4" by 15" inside the mat, 25 1/2" by 22 1/4" in a modern gold frame with blue green mat and inner fillet. The drawing was purchased recently in Newport, Rhode Island, the seller telling me it came out of an estate there, where it was suggested to him that the artist was Rhode Island impressionist artist Helena Sturtevant (1872-1946), but it is unlikely that that...
All Items : Fine Art : Paintings : Oil : Asia : Pre 2000 item #1419551 (stock #JB02283)
Small decorative oil on canvas of a scene in Thailand with small boats, a figure paddling one of them, two ducks, and a house on a shore, 6" by 9" (9 1/2" by 12 1/4"), signed at lower right "Sak" or "Yak". Probably tourist art, this is nicely framed and the mat is clean, making for a decorative and inexpensive Asian accent for the home.
All Items : Fine Art : Paintings : Watercolor : Pre 1900 item #1419550 (stock #JB02280)
Watercolor with gouache highlights on paper painting 13 3/4" by 9 1/2" inside the mat, of a large and impressive castle on a hill, (possibly Windsor Castle near London), a pastoral landscape with figures in the foreground, signed in pencil at lower right "A WATT". There is a listing for an Arthur George Watt (1883-1935) but I doubt this be the same artist, as the techniques and style do not mesh and the dates are wrong; this drawing is earlier. The drawing is beautifully executed by a talented...

A rare, most attractive painting of the famous landmark Masjid-e-shah mosque in Isfahan, Iran (the mosque now called "Imam Mosque". Measuring 19 3/4" by 27 3/4" on the stretchers, 25" by 33" as framed, the work is signed at lower right "Andro" and is dated there 1966. Affixed to the backing paper is a handwritten note giving the title and location. On the reverse of the canvas are what I believe are three numerals in Farsi language. I have located another work online by this same artist, of ...
