Oil on canvas scene of a Parisian street with figures, in the early 20th century, 24" by 20" (30" by 25 1/2" framed), signed at lower right by the popular contemporary painter who signs as "G. SHERMAN". The scene is reminiscent of Caillebotte's famous scenes of Paris, or perhaps of a number of works by the noted British painter L. P. Lowry. Paintings signed by this artist G. Sherman were formerly listed in auction catalogs by some of the biggest houses in America as being by the listed artist Gail Corbett Sherman, who died in 1953, despite the canvas and so forth being very obviously by a contemporary late 20th century painter. Nevertheless works by this mysterious artist have achieved considerable popularity on their own merits, one having sold at Sotheby's for over $13,000, and others in the low to mid thousands quite commonly, based solely on the rich impressionist technique and classic subject matter. I saw a high end dealer asking $25,000 for a large especially fine example, at the Miami Beach Antique Show some years ago. This example is in excellent condition and it is a lovely work that is ready for the wall. I would guess it to have been executed in the 1970's or 1980's. There is some speculation that "G. Sherman" is a talented Asian artist painting in the western classic style.
