Painting

Travelers on a Country Road

This is a very fine original 19th Century painting in the style of Marinus Adrianus Koekkoek (1807-1868). Oil on panel, 7 1/4 x 8 7/8 inches, c. 1850, unsigned, in an ornate period gilt frame. Although this painting is unsigned, the style and subject are very reminiscent of the work of Dutch artist Marinus Adrianus Koekkoek, who was known for his delicately painted atmospheric landscapes.

Print

Recess - The District School
1870-1944, American

This etching by George Shorey measures 7 1/8 x 11 7/8 inches and is pencil signed on the lower right margin. Games of marbles, jump-rope, crack the whip, baseball, tag, telling of tall tales, the teacher admonishing a student, and let us not forget the sneaking out of detention game all rendered in this one image illustrates Shorey's attention to detail and his ability to create energy and movement on a two dimensional surface.
