If you have been searching for a rather large original painting of mermaids with a ship in the background then look no further. This painting was most likely done as an illustration of some kind as the painter, Morton R. Addy (b. 1890), was an illustrator who worked for Western Lithograph in the early 20th century and is known or listed artist from California. This work is housed in the period original gold frame and measures a whopping 38 x 30 inches (painting size). The overall dimensions including the frame are 43 1/2 by 35 1/2 inches, approximately. The painting is in great shape with no holes, no flaking and no obvious repairs that I can see. Ready to hang condition. The frame is in great shape with a few minor rubs and dings typical of a frame that is close to 100 years old. Signed and dated by the artist in the lower left corner. This is a perfect painting for a bar, restaurant, or similar retail location with a nautical or mermaid theme. It's a striking painting that is sure to command attention. Note: Due to the size of this painting, we'll have to make special arrangements for delivery. Please contact me to discuss further.
