Painting

The Road Home
1829-1913, Canadian/American

Oil on panel, 9 x 11 inches, 1874, signed and dated lower right, in a period gilt frame. This is a wonderful tonalist view of a horse drawn hay wagon bound for home in the bleak cold of winter. This painting is by well known Canadian painter Francois B. De Blois. His formal art education includes studies in Europe (c.1870) under Charles-François Daubigny (see AskART) probably in Paris or Auvers sur Oise a suburb to the north of Paris; and under Vincenzo Marinelli (see AskART) in Naples, Italy.

Print

Hamburg Harbor
1881-1962, Austrian

This is a remarkable original etching and aquatint of Hamburg Harbor in Germany. The image size is 15 5/8 x 22 3/4 inches, published in 1914 in an edition of 100 impressions, pencil signed and numbered, framed. This image is printed using two plates, one in black ink and one in gray ink to create a chiaroscuro effect with beautiful tonal range and rich contrast. Luigi Kasimir studied at the Vienna Academy of Art, although much of his etching technique was self taught and learned through working from nature.
