SOBLE", not dated but likely circa 1940's to 1960 or so. This is a work by a listed artist who exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago, National Academy, Corcoran and Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, among other venues. Some works have auctioned over $3,000. The artist was born in Russian and is most closely associated today with the New York area. He worked in a variety of media and with widely varying subject material. This is a fine decorative mid century work.
