Pastel and charcoal on gray paper, 17 1/2" by 11 1/2" plus narrow wood frame, signed at lower right with conjoined initials "VG", which corresponds to the name of the artist Vinnie Gjere. I was able to figure out the authorship due to there being a companion piece on my site, also a still life and purchased at the same time as this one; that piece is not signed on the front but on the reverse in pencil is "Vinnie Gjere". I might have the spelling just a bit off on that last name but I've tried different combinations and can't find a listing. This work is in excellent shape with just slight pastel dust transfer to glass. Ideally it should be reframed in a professional way so that there's a mat to ensure it doesn't touch the glass directly. I would judge age as pre World War 2. There's a pencil inscription on remains of framing paper adhering to frame, saying, "For Jim Pastel & charcoal about 1919 at N. N. D.". At least I think that's the date, the third digit is unclear. Certainly though this has age and is in the Arts and Crafts style. A quality addition to any home or office. The companion piece should be easy to find within my shop, let me know if you have trouble finding it. Shipping wizard figures are guesstimates. SEE HUNDREDS OF OTHER WORKS NOW IN MY SHOP.
