Oil on canvas painting of a cozy cabin in the remote western mountains in winter, 24" by 22 (29" by 27" in original vintage old interesting gold frame, signed at lower left by Kansas-born artist PAUL GREGG (1876-1949). Gregg, living in Kansas as a boy, witnessed much of the activity in nearby Indian Territory (Oklahoma), and he kept these memories with him for life. He worked as an illustrator for the Denver Post and other publications, turning out Old West landscapes, often with figures on horseback. This oil in in very good condition. There is surface soiling and I note some tiny pinpoint losses. The reverse side exhibits staining from moisture or other source but this does not seem to have seriously affected the painting. Our scene could be in Alaska, almost, but I do not see any evidence that he worked there. Therefore this is most likely in the Colorado mountains. Note the birch trees and the smoke coming out of the chimney of this small refuge from the elements.
