Offering this original unframed pastel portrait of a pensive looking man by the listed Ohio artist Victor Keuping (1903-?). A striking work reminiscent of the 1930's American Regionalism movement in art. Has a nice WPA feel to it. Measures 8 x 10 inches approximately (image area). Paper size is about 9 x 11 1/2 inches. The paper support is fixed to a cardboard backing with two strips of paper tape along the top edge. This work is not dry mounted. There is a notation in pencil on the verso with the artist's name. In our opinion, this work dates to around 1930 give or take a few years. Very good condition. With the right framing and matting, this one will really shine and add to any decor.
