Irving Sinclair (Canada / America, 1895-1969) Charcoal Portrait of Ed Hafter c.1950

Fine charcoal portrait by noted American artist Irving Sinclair.

The sitter is Ed. Hafter, though we are unsure of who this person was. He does appear in the U.S. Census as a resident of San Francisco in the 1940s.

The portrait measures 17" x 22". The lightly distressed period frame measures 23" x 29".

The portrait is titled "Ed. Hafter" and initialed by Irving Sinclair.

It's a fantastic mid century modern portrait that would benefit from a new frame.

Vintage portraits are becoming sought after by designers and collectors alike. The one really stands out for it's life-like quality.

After settling in San Francisco in 1917, Sinclair worked as a billboard artist for Foster & Kleiser, and in the 1920s was art director for Fox West Coast Theaters. In 1939 he studied in New York under Wayman Adams. San Francisco remained his adopted home where he painted Mayors Rossi, Robinson, and Christopher. He became well known for portraits of Hollywood stars and other famous Americans including F. D. Roosevelt and Dwight D. Eisenhower. Summers were often spent in Canada in his Galiano Island studio. Sinclair died in San Francisco on Feb. 21, 1969.
