Leo Politi 1936 Gouache: Donkey Cart Meets Donkey Train P591

This small painted landscape screen is one of the most beautiful things we have ever had in the store, front and back. It is signed by Hester Maitland Radford(1887-?).

M.C.Kinney Reclining Male Figure: Boxer 1920s P588

P588-2

A powerfully executed figure study in oils with a fantastic amount of period flavor.

Kinney on the reverse of the canvas is the artist's name or ...

Charles Payzant Watercolor, Double-sided: Cowboy on Winter Ranch/ Market Scene P586

P586-8

Generally acknowledged as one of America's most gifted watercolorists, Charles Payzant (1898-1980) made his own choice between the two by signing the Cowboy, whose restrained palette of brown and dun give it a special distinction, but we love the Market Scene too, with its almost Dufy-esque pops of color among the flowers and fruit. Artwork measures ...
