Fall Landscape with Sheep
1848-1923, American

A great New Hampshire landscape by William Preston Phelps, this painting measures 16 x 24 inches, oil on canvas, c. 1900, signed in the lower right corner, in a beautiful modern gilt frame. Known as the "Painter of Monadnock", Phelps lived most of his life in Dublin and Chesham, NH, with the exception of several years he spent studying art in Europe. He painted many scenes of the area landscape of farms, fields and forests, most of which were set against the backdrop of the majestic Mount Monadnock.


En Route
1900-1971, British

A fine original etching with colors by Elyse Ashe Lord, this image measures 13 1/4 x 16 1/8 inches, edition of 75, hand signed and numbered in ink. Elyse Lord lived her entire life in Britain and although her work shows a strong Asian influence, she never actually traveled the continent. Her inspiration instead came from Chinese literature, artwork and her own imagination. Her unique style uses fine drypoint lines and delicate, yet vibrant colors to create images that that have a serene, almost dreamlike quality.
