Interesting and unusual print by a so far unidentified artist, 10 1/4" by 8" inside the mat, 15" by 12 1/2" simply framed, the subject a white-haired fiddler seated in a chair. The Mark Twain-appearing man vaguely resembles figures you've seen in prints by Thomas Hart Benton, and the print REALLY resembles a work by artist Eric Bransby (born 1916), recently recognized with an exhibition at a well-known Denver gallery. I submitted images of the print to the gallery to ask them if they thought this a work by Mr. Bransby, who is in his late 90's. After viewing the images, the artist himself replied that this was likely by another student in a class he attended. Although a positive artist identification is yet to be made, certainly some progress in that direction is apparent. The print is in basic viewable condition. The mat is an overmat which is partially glued down on top, in the manner of the times at mid century. There are a few foxing marks at top left, in the violinist's fingers at right, and at bottom right, but they are not obtrusive. The last photo is of the promotion card for the aforementioned gallery exhibition of artist Eric James Bransby in Colorado.
