A beautifully executed work in pastel, 18" by 25 1/2", in a narrow metal poster-type frame behind glass with no mat, signed at upper left and dated there 1977 in Roman numerals (LXXVII)) by the noted well listed American artist SHELDON C. SCHONEBERG (1926-2013). At upper right, he titled the work "Grosvenor Park, London". The vigorously worked trees, sweep of the curved interaction of park and street, and small cars, flags and figures make for a handsome work. Schoneberg was born in Illinois but was in California as a child.. He was educated at Chouinard, UCLA and University of Southern California, in Los Angeles, and received further art training in Rome at the Academia di Bell Arti and at the University of Michoacan in Morelia, Mexico. Since the 1960's, numerous exhibitions of his work were held at galleries and other venues in Europe and the United States. One exhibition was actually held at the Anne Frank House museum in Amsterdam. Schoneberg worked in many places in the United States and Europe. He was a full professor of art at the State University of New York at New Paltz, and also at the University of Maine at Gorham. He was a prolific artist, skilled in lithography, drawing, oil painting and sculpture too. Commonly he depicted male and female individuals, genre, and landscapes. This work is in excellent, very fresh condition. Anyone familiar with this central London landmark should appreciate the artist's interpretation. Note what appears to be the red and white Canadian "Maple Leaf" flag on the building, perhaps the Canadian Embassy.
