**ONE OF TWO WORKS BY THIS ARTIST IN MY SHOP**Oil on canvas, 14" by 18" , (18 1/2" by 22 1/2" in old possibly original frame), the subject given on original Sanborn Studio, Belfast, Maine label as "Bend in Little River" (faint, but still readable with some effort). The work is not signed but is almost surely by the important Maine artist PERCY A. SANBORN (1849-1929). Sanborn was born in Waldo, Maine and lived for many years in coastal Belfast. He is well known for his marine oils of clipper ships, some of which exceed $20,000 at auction, but he was also known for his animal portraits, which are also sought after at auction today. This oil depicts with considerable sensitivity a common enough sight, a bend in a local stream or river. The artist has escalated that simple subject into a fine little painting of autumn. My research on the net shows that there are many streams and rivers in Maine bearing that name, so it's hard to know exactly which one is depicted here. The painting is in good condition with the exception of a small puncture/disturbance about 3/4" long at upper center, appearing in images as a white area.
