Painting

Petrean Place
1907-1982, British/American

This collage by Nora Unwin measures 15 1/2 x 19 1/2 inches and is matted and framed. Created in 1972, Unwin gives the viewer a look past a rocky seawall to the water's distant horizon line. Her use of cloth, textured paper, glue and colored ink skillfully adhered to a painted background was one of her favorite mediums to display her genius, giving the viewer this three-dimensional effect. Signed and dated in the lower right corner.

Print

Fishing Boats in Harbor
1872-1936, French

A beautiful sun drenched scene by Manuel Robbe, under his pseudonym Alphonse Lafitte. Color etching with aquatint, image size 19 1/2 x 12 inches, published in 1919 by Estampe Moderne, Paris, with the blindstamp below the image, pencil signed "A. Lafitte". Manuel Robbe studied at the Academie Julien and the Ecole des Beaux Artes, becoming a master of the aquatint medium during the ‘Belle Epoch’ of early 20th century France. He developed much of his own aquatint techniques, which enabled him to create his uniquely painterly, richly colored images.
