Painting

Landscape with Sheep and Chickens
1849-1931, Belgian

This is a beautiful dusky farmyard scene by Belgian artist Eugene Remy Maes, painted in oil on canvas, 15 3/4 x 23 3/4 inches, c. 1890, signed "Th van Sluys"(a pseudonym of Maes') in the lower right corner. An inscription on the back reads "Je soussigné declare aroir pacint le tableau ci contre -Th van Sluys". This painting comes in a remarkable period frame that has been recently regilded. Maes was born in the small village of Puurs, Belgium and moved to Antwerp as a young man. He specialized in images of farm animals, such as this twilight pastoral scene.

Print

Ice River Country
1884-1954, American

A great sun-drenched western scene, this etching measures 12 3/8 x 10 3/8, published in 1936, pencil signed, dated and titled. Palenske was equally an outdoorsman and an artist, spending much of his time out riding and exploring the western wilderness. His etchings reflect his great love of the outdoors, as in this image of two riders pausing to look up at the rugged mountain terrain.
