19th c. American School

Harbor Nocturne

This is an atmospheric moonlit scene of a ship coming in to harbor, painted in oil on Academy Board and measuring 15 1/8 x 11 inches. It is obscurely signed "H. G. Lask..?" in the lower right corner; although we have not been able to determine the identity of the artist, this painting is certainly done by a skilled hand, very much in the style of James Gale Tyler. A very fine 19th century painting in an ornate period gilt frame.

Print

Turn of the Road
1879-1955, British

This colored woodblock print by British printmaker A. Rigden Read measures 14 7/8 x 10 1/2 inches. It is numbered, titled and signed in pencil on the lower margin. Read was born in the working class area of London. Little is known about him but during his studies he did travel to Japan and learned the art of the woodcut. He produced many of these in the 1920's and the predominant theme of his work was the itinerant worker making a living in the local countryside. This image titled "Turn in the Road" is one of his few landscapes.
