Oil on canvas, 14" by 18", (18 1/2" by 22 1/2" in old possibly original frame), the subject given on original Sanborn Studio, Belfast, Maine label as "Bend in Little River" (faint, but still readable with some effort).

This is an oil on canvas painting of a mounted cowboy in a forested mountain landscape, keeping an eye on several misbehaving steers. The work is signed at lower right by artist WESLEY LE ROY FULLER and is dated there 1993. His interesting cypher appears adjacent to the date. On the stretcher on the reverse the artist has signed again and added the comment "Good luck to the Elks purple pig"; and there also appears to be a price "$600" and title "Keep em out of the tember" (sic)...

Dark brown ink drawing on paper, 11 3/4" by 18", unframed, signed at lower right "John Floyd Morris", titled ISCHIA NAPOLI. The artist is well listed, and is associated with California and the east coast, with askart noting exhibitions in Chicago and Palm Beach. He is perhaps best known for his modern and surrealistic paintings, but painted a wide range of subject matter, including clowns. Interestingly, a big collector of his work seems to have been none other than Noel Coward...

Oil on canvas, 27" by 34" (33" by 40" as framed), the subject an arcaded breezeway in a California mission such as San Juan Capistrano. The circa 1940's or 1950's (I would guess) painting is signed at lower left "V. Hodges". I don't see any evidence that this is a listed artist, so am offering this work on its decorative qualities. The painting has evidently spent a lot of time in smoky rooms, as it is very yellowed from nicotine...

Etching of the famous Chicago River surrounded by the classic skyscrapers, signed in the plate and dated 1927 at lower right, by the listed artist OTTO J. SCHNEIDER (1875-1946). The print does not appear to be pencil signed. Note the fine detail and the 1920's automobiles in the image at right corner. Schneider was born in Illinois and is most closely associated with that state. He exhibited at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition of 1904, and the Panama Pacific Exposition of 1915...

It is signed at lower right "Yamagata" and dated there 2007...

Oil on canvas painting titled on the stretcher in pencil "Superstition Mountain, Arizona", signed at lower left by the well listed California artist PAUL LAURITZ (1889-1975). The scene is of the legendary, rugged and forbidding mountain range just to the east of the metropolitan Phoenix area, said to contain the fabled Lost Dutchman mine. The painting measures 22" by 34" and 28" by 40" framed. Lauritz is considered one of the important plein air painters, a number of works having exceeded $25...

Lithograph on paper, 7 1/2" by 4 1/2" (13 1/8" by 10" as framed), signed in pencil at lower right by the noted German Jewish artist HERMANN STRUCK (1876-1944). The subject is a man wearing a cap. Struck was born in Berlin or Orthodox Jewish parentage. Early in his life he met the Zionist leader Theodor Herzl (1860-1904), a meeting which profoundly influenced the artist. Struck's most desirable subject matter, scenes of Israel from the late 1920's, have brought to the $25,000 area at auction. ...

Oil on canvas, 18 1/2" by 15" (23 1/2" by 20" as framed), the subject a vase of flowers painted in a highly impressionistic manner. The painting is signed in a manner consistent with the notoriously difficult to decipher signature of the artist HENRY d'ANTY (1910-1998) at lower right, so, I am offering it as a genuine work of that artist. I would guess the age as circa 1950's or early 1960's. Interestingly, there is a vintage sticker on the frame reverse from the "Maison Franco" framing and ar...

This is a large (29 1/2" by 37", 37" by 44" framed) oil on canvas by the well-listed Spanish artist EMILIA CASTANEDA (also known as Emilia Castaneda MARTINEZ), born in Barcelona in 1943 and still associated with that city. Castaneda studied art and won awards there as early as the 1960's; solo exhibitions of her work began in 1973 and continue to recent years, in numerous European venues, as well as in America. Her work usually features nude women, sometimes portrayed in a discrete, poetic man...

Watercolor on paper trompe l'oeil still life of wild bird, seeds, and other natural objects, 15 1/2" by 11 1/2" (24 1/2" by 20 1/2" as framed, and will be shipped without glass), signed boldly at lower left "Herbert Turrell". This is a beautiful, delicate work by an obviously talented artist who, according to my google research, exhibited at the prestigious Royal Academy in at least the early years of the twentieth century. He is listed as having submitted watercolors in the years 1904 and 190...

Pencil on paper drawing of a southern-style house with large tree and foreground dog, dated 1967 lower right, 5" by 6 3/4", 13" by 15" framed, by the well listed Louisiana artist ROLLAND HARVE GOLDEN (1931-2019). The dog resembles an ancient breed of dog, such as would be seen in a museum of Egyptian sculptural antiquities--perhaps, the pet of a pharaoh. The juxtaposition of the dog in front of the typical and familiar southern architecture is in keeping with Golden's self-described "borderlin...

Oil on canvas laid on masonite, 10 3/4" by 14", unframed, signed at lower left with what appears to be the name "Jens Oyme". I have not found a listing for such a name, even when varying the letters a bit. So, this is offered as a nice decorative work showing a peaceful deep fjord probably on the west coast of Norway, a small structure at right. The reflection in the water is probably the most skillfully painted area. There is slight paint loss showing as white areas at left and a few tiny l...
