An opportunity to acquire an original oil on canvas painting by a very highly esteemed twentieth century California artist, the works of whom have exceeded $50,000 at auction. This work is signed at lower right by California twentieth century artist ROGER KUNTZ (1926-1975). The subject is apparently a coastline with abstracted trees and houses next to a dark blue sea. The work itself measures 12" by 16" (17 1/2" by 21 1/2" in a quality frame by Munn, a respected old La Cienega Boulevard framer). Kuntz was born in Texas and moved around California as a youth, and saw a portion of Europe, before settling in the Pomona area where he became a member of the so-called "Claremont Group". Eventually he settled in Laguna Beach. In recent years, his paintings of common scenes of twentieth century coastal California, and complex interiors with figures, have seen a resurgence of collector interest. In 2009 the Laguna Art Museum held an exhibition of his work titled simply "Roger Kuntz". The Munn framer's label is pre-zip code, suggesting perhaps an early 1960's date of execution.
