This is a very Impressive and Narrative Oil Painting from the Norman Rockwell Era! Fabulous Oil on Stretched Canvas . A Listed and very well known Artist and Illustrator, John A. Coughlin. Noted for his artwork for Harper's Weekly, Pulp Magazines, Detective Magazine, and others. This Painting is Huge~ Oil On Canvas Under Glass, the Painting itself measures 40" x 26". In Frame measures Approx. 48" x 34". This artwork is very narrative, several colorful small town Americana characters. Appears to be the Story of Small Town America - a friendly greeting to a wealthy woman and local gossips looking on. John A. Coughlin did Illustrate a Story for the Nobel Prize and Pulitzer Prize winning Author Sinclair Lewis, in 1918. As with many Sinclair Lewis stories , it portrays life in small town America, the story is called " The Tamarack Lover", it appeared in Hearst's Magazine in Feb 1918. I have not been able to locate a copy of this story but I believe this Painting may be Illustration Art for it. The story can be found in "The Minnesota Stories of Sinclair Lewis". As it has been housed in a frame under glass, the colors are still bright, some slight slack in canvas, as well as crazing in the painting. This is signed by the artist, and dated , appears to be 1918. We welcome all serious inquiries. Possible hand delivery in NY/NJ/CT areas
