Between Tides


A quiet image of fishing boats moored in a small harbor by Massachusetts artist Gordon Grant, this lithograph measures 9 x 12 inches, published c. 1940 by the Associated American Artists, pencil signed.

Elms by the Lake


A finely detailed etching by Luigi Lucioni, this image measures 7 7/8 x 10 7/8 inches and was published by the Associated American Artists in 1938 in an edition of 152. It is pencil signed and is number 58 in the Embury catalog. This image is in excellent condition and features a rich impression printed with ample margins on a cream colored wove type paper. Lucioni was known for his remarkably detailed etchings of the New England landscape, and this image is a great example of the textures and sense of atmosphere that he could bring to life.

Paris Nude study


This one is a mystery. We found it at a local antique shop. It is a fragment, an unstretched canvas, unsigned. It looks like someone cut this out of a frame in the distant past. We found on the back of the canvas a stamp from the art shop in Paris "Hardy Alan", their address on rue du Chert Midi was the address of the store up until 1907 when they moved to a different location. It was a very important artist supply where many of the leading artists of the period bought their paints and canvases. Those artists included, John Singer Sargent, James Whistler, Renoir, Fantin Latour and even Van Gogh. The look of this painting does suggest that it may be a study, or an unfinished work by an important artist. Its possible that the original signature was cut away when the piece was removed from the original wooden stretcher. The canvas measures 15X21 inches, it is in a nice period frame under glass. The frame dates back to the mid to late 19th century. The frame is missing some chips here and there. The painting has some wrinkles and scrapes but could easily be fixed or restretched. Everything is stable, the painting could use a light cleaning.. Having said that, in its current state it does look very fine.

Canal View


A very rare original etching by American artist Blanche Dillaye (1851-1931) We are unsure as the title of this image, it shows a boat at anchor in a canal. The image measures 7 3/4X12 1/4 inches. Printed on a light weight laid type paper. Signed in the plate lower left and also hand signed in pencil lower right border. Fine use of plate tone in the sky and water.

French Village


This is an early etching and drypoint by American artist Gabrielle De Vaux Clements (1858-1948) This etching created circa 1880 is of a European country village. It is hand signed in pencil lower right and measures an image of 8X11 3/4 inches. Clements was one of a group of Women artists who travel and studied in France at this time. The group included: Mary Cassatt, Ellen Day Hale, Lesley Bush-Brown and Anna Lea Merritt. A beautiful very rare image!
