A lovely small oil painting created in Massachusetts and framed by, Meekins, Packard & Wheat, Inc., of Springfield, MA.  The backing paper shows the label of the long gone department store, which was once very prominent in Western Massachusetts.  The frame itself is rather delicate and has some corner damage. This happens to be common with old gilded plaster frames.

The details and composition are charming and the artist was certainly trained.  The painting certainly shows a great deal of Realism in technique.  No signature is present, so the artist is unknown.

Circa 1910-1920

Offered at $350.-usd SOLD

YOUNG LADY WITH DOG

Signed and Dated 1938

A pre-WWII portrait of a lady seated in period clothing with a small dog.  The painting is signed, but the name of the artist is hard to read.  The painter obviously had formal training, as the proportions and composition are well thought out.  It appears to have been created over several sittings, with many layers of paint present.  It’s a vibrant painting in both colour and subject. The plaster copper leaf frame is complimentary to several details within the painting.  The frame has a few small repairs to the plaster, which are blended in rather well and only noticeable with a close inspection. The frame measures 24″x31″.

I was told it was painted in Massachusetts.  The subject in the painting is holding a cigarette, but be assured the painting itself has no offensive smells.

Notre Dame, Paris, circa 1930
  By Guy De Neyrac
The painting is of Notre Dame Cathedral, with a morning street scene in the foreground.  It appears to be painted just after a morning rain, as the clouds began to disperse, with a glimpse of sunlight. The artist focused his attention to the reflectiveness of wet pavement, using broad washes and loose pen outlining of the architectural elements.  It’s a restful scene of a usually busy avenue and Notre Dame.  There are a few loosely painted cars and a couple horsemen at the controls of a carriage.  The playful pen outlining is a trademark of Neyrac’s style.

The condition of the watercolour is excellent.  The title of the painting is seen on the bottom left and is signed prominently on the bottom right.  The watercolour is tastefully framed in a high quality limed wood frame, linen border and anti-glare glass.  The frame, glass and backing appear to be more recent than the 1930s.  The dimensions of the frame are approximately 25″x30.5″.
