This is a very fine original seascape by American artist Paul Saling. Oil on masonite, 14 x 13 3/4 inches, c. 1930, signed, in a modern heavily gilded art deco style frame. Born in Germany, Saling emigrated to America through Ellis Island in 1893 at the age of 17. He was a successful decorator and artist first in New York City, then in Hartford, Connecticut. In the late 1920s, he moved to Lyme, Connecticut, the setting for many of his landscapes.
