A wonderful oil painting of Samson and Delilah. I see no scratches, holes or restorations. Signed top left, E Kruse. The painting measures 22 inches wide and 24 inches tall. This was reframed in the 2000’s. The frame measures 24-1/4 inches wide and 26-1/4 inches tall. Frame has a couple dents under paint but still looks nice. On the verso are the original back tags from a competition and a newspaper clipping. The back paper has been torn at the top so if you would like new back paper or it removed, please let me know and I will have it done free of charge.
Edith Kruse was born 1930. This painting was painted in 1950 while a student at Washburn University of Kansas. This won the artist a first prize and a scholarship to continue her education. She was an artist, art teacher and home maker. She married her husband, Kennith Lake, just after entering this painting in the competition in 1950. Her father was Reverend Clifton B Kruse. This painting came from the estate of Clifton Bryan Kruse Jr. in Colorado Springs, CO.
