Stunning original oil painting on panel painting by listed Ohio / California artist Robert J. Smith (1901-1985). Smith is from the Dayton OH area but did spend a few years living and working in San Francisco, CA. This is an exceptionally large painting with the original frame measuring 39 x 32 inches (actual size of the painting) with an overall measurement of 49 x 42 inches. Signed by the artist along the lower edge of the painting. Condition is very good with no obvious signs of damage or repair. Original "Rikes" label is present on the back of the painting along with an ink stamp with the artist's name and copyright notice. Due to the large size of this painting, special shipping will have to be arranged. This is the largest Smith painting I have seen and is definitely one of the more interesting. A very skilled rendition of a pleasant still life arrangement. Fresh to the market from a local estate.
