A clean example of "Wall Street, New York", a limited edition 1989 print after a painting by the well known contemporary artist, who signs "G. Harvey" (GERALD HARVEY JONES, born 1933). The work features a nostalgic turn-of-the-century view of Wall Street in the late afternoon of a gray winter day, painted in the artist's typically realistic style. Jones' style has been described as somewhat resembling that of Edouard Cortes, who painted Paris. This is a stretch; perhaps, it is more the nostalgia for an urban scene, rather than the artistic technique that is similar. Jones also paints realistic and more impressionist views of the western United States, from boomtowns with oil derricks to cowboys and rangers and explorers and other hardy folks of the early west; he always turns an eye towards history, when seeking inspiration. Occasionally he paints Native American subject matter such as tipi's. The artist is the grandson of a cowboy and cattle herder in central Texas, and he works today from a studio in the beloved Texas Hill Country. Oil paintings by Harvey have attained $150,000 at major auctions. The print is numbered 832/4378, and there were about 1,500 proofs. It was issued by Somerset House Publishing in 1989. Their original Statement of Authenticity is affixed to the backing. Dimensions are 41" by 30 1/4" framed. The frame has some light wear that could likely be easily sanded out and re-stained. This is a large sheet of glass; for safer shipping, replacement with Plexi might be an option. Allow for reflections in some images.
