Wonderful pastel by well known American Artist - illustrator Henry HY Hintermeister (1897-1970) depicting a summer day after rain - "JUNE". Hintermeister was best known for his illustrations and this is a fine example of his drawing in very good condition.
The drawing is pastel on paper on canvas, signed lower left, framed and protected with glass.
Measures 15" high x 10" wide without frame; with the frame 20" x 15" accordingly. Frame is original to the drawing.
Oil paintings by Hintermeister have recently sold between $1,500-$10,000+ at auction. My price of $750. is extremely reasonable and below what one would be expected to pay for it in a gallery or at auction.
About Artist - Henry Hintermeister was born in 1897 in New York.
His father John Henry Hintermeister was an illustrator as well. Father and son often worked as a duo, from the 1890's to the 1940's, under the pseudonym Hy Hintermeister. They became well known producing over 1,000 of illustrations; John Henry and Henry were often compared to Norman Rockwell with their illustration storytelling. The duo produced a series of calendars depicting American history from 1775-1787. They used identical signatures making their illustrations nearly impossible to distinguish.
