Painting

A Cool Quiet Rook
1855-?, American

This landscape measures 12 5/8 x 9 1/8 inches and is signed on the reverse in pencil as "E. A. King", housed in a period frame. We are attributing this painting to Elizabeth A.(Bessie) King who studied at the Chandler School of Art in Detroit and was a member of the Atlanta Artists Association.

Print

The Handshake
b. 1911, American

Woodblock, image size 4 x 6 1/2 inches, 1937, initialed in the plate, pencil signed and dated. As is typical with this artist, he hand signed and dated his images on the paper window mat rather than the sheet itself.

Drawing

The Old Peep Toad Mill
1854-1934, American

Watercolor on paper adhered to mat board, 8 x 10 1/4 inches, signed on the back and inscribed "Old Peep Toad Mill / North S[cit]uate, RI / Aug. 5, 1914." The town name is hard to make out, but there is an old Peep Toad Mill in East Killingly, Connecticut, not far from the Rhode Island state line. Hays had a studio in Providence, RI, and is known for painting bucolic subjects.
