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

Temple
1907-1997, Japanese

This is a very rare early print by Kiyoshi Saito. Woodblock in colors, image size 20 x 32 inches, published in 1955 in a small edition of 50, stamped and hand signed in ink in the image, numbered "6/50" and inscribed "Designed in 1955" in the pencil in the lower margin. Framed, with the artist's label on the back reading "Self Carved, Self Printed, Kiyoshi Saito". Saito studied both Western and Japanese art in Tokyo in the early 20th century, and although originally a painter, by 1940 he concentrated exclusively on color woodblock prints.
