Bizarre Oil on Board, Figures/Antique Shop, Mid 20th Century, American, Signed Seaman Medium: Original Oil Painting on Artist Canvas Board
Size: 16 x 12
Description: If you are looking for a conversation piece, look no further. This original oil on board painting is unique and unusual. I have no idea what the artist intended here, I have studied this piece for some time and I am still just as confused about it as the day I purchased it. We have a figure suspended in air in front of an antique shop doing what? A nice colorful tree is present in the foreground. Lots of nice color present throughout the picture. Well painted, appears to be the work of a trained individual. The white washed frame goes well with the painting and gives it sort of a shabby chic look. In all, this is one of those paintings you don't get tired of looking at. Signed by the artist in the lower right corner. Looks to date about 1940 give or take a few years. Magic realism?
Condition: Very good, nice stable paint surface.
Frame: Original period frame, ready to hang.
Listed: There are several listings for Seaman, however this painting has not been attributed to a particular one. I do have other paintings by the same artist that originated from the same estate.
