Tropical art 1913 dated painting of coconut palms signed by Caribbean artist
Oil on canvas, 12" by 15" and 1" wide frame, signed at lower right "S W Poyer" and dated 1913, I believe (last digit unclear). This is a nicely painted work showing young coconut palms, painted in an impressionistic manner by an obviously trained artist. Internet search was not productive but other information I developed indicates the artist painted in Barbados in the southern Caribbean. The painting was found here in Southern California. Condition: dirty, needs cleaning, stretcher bar shows through at top and right, 1" horizontal pressure tear in the canvas near the base of the palm at center left, a tiny near-puncture at upper right, some paint flaking in the final digits of the date. Period frame is worn and would likely need to be replaced. For the collector of tropical art, or Hawaiiana or Floridiana, even though the work is not of that origin, this would make for a fine acquisition; vintage tropical art is hard to find. There is some really nice brush work that would come out with a cleaning and varnish job.
