Oil on canvasboard, 16" by 20" (19" by 23" in its simple wood frame), the subject Motif #1 in iconic Rockport, Massachusetts harbor at the tip of artists' paradise Cape Ann, circa 1950's or 1960's I would guess, signed at lower right by the artist. This is rather typical subject matter for Garabedian, who worked on the north shore, in Maine, and even away from the coastal areas, always painting in an impressionistic hand. This painting has lots going on: the famous red shack itself, a number of boats, several figures, lobster traps, a barrel. A simple cleaning will remove some years of grime, and freshen this up considerably. The artist's works sell at auction generally under $1000. A gold frame would also add to the power of this painting. .
