The print, measuring 5 1/2" by 10" inside the mat, 14 1/4" by 19" simply framed, has a 19th century feel (or, earlier, actually). The artist has sensitively portrayed a familiar scene of his homeland...

Collectors of fine botanical prints know that the works of Doctor "Doc" Thornton are among the finest of the fine, their technical complexity surpassing virtually all other efforts over the centuries. Thornton (1768-1837) was a medical doctor and botanical writer and lecturer in medical botany. He was educated at Cambridge and inherited a family fortune, but dissipated it in the course of his heroic effort to produce a landmark series of botanical prints...

A beautiful, accomplished watercolor landscape painting of a gully with running water, 10 1/2" by 14 1/2" (19" by 22 1/2" in early 20th century gold frame), signed at lower left by the noted California art pioneer WILLIAM LEES JUDSON (1842-1928).

An American contemporary theorem still life painting in the traditional 19th century familiar style, signed by artist Esther M. Attridge and dated on reverse framing paper 1973. The work measures 10 1/2" by 13 1/2" and about 12 1/2" by 15 1/2" in the gold framing. Some contemporary artists have made names for themselves by copying the old American folk art theorem style.

Oil on Masonite painting of coastal rocks and waves, framed in an interesting and appealing vintage wood frame, signed at lower right by artist J. Wessely. I do not see a listing for the artist, who created an attractive and dynamic composition. The painting measures 18" by 24" (22 3/4" by 28 3/4" framed). It could date to about the early 1950's, judging from frame and board. The frame has a rugged, "Cabin Art" feeling with bold outdoorsy carving...

Oil on canvas painting of what appear to be roses or possibly peonies in a vase on a tabletop, signed with initials at extreme lower right, and measuring 15" by 12 1/2" (19 1/2" by 17" framed). At first glance this appears to be a fine old vintage work of the 19th century or even earlier, but closer inspection reveals that this is actually a late 20th century work painted in that earlier style, including the detailed drops of water on the leaves...
