The highly impressionistic American oil paintings of Anthony Thieme, noted Cape Ann, Massachusetts artist, are among the most sought after works in today's auction scene, some bringing prices well into the mid five figures or higher. Those works are typically scenes of Rockport, Gloucester, Florida and far flung locations like Italy and Central America. It's rather less known that Thieme in his earlier years worked in creating stage designs. This rare early drawing, signed at lower left and dated 1920, is one such surviving work. It measures 12" by 4 3/4" (17 1/2" by 11" as framed). One could imagine this small drawing's image gracing a curtain in a major opera house or theater during the Art Deco period. The artist has used watercolor and possibly gouache to create this unique and scarce work. Colors are vibrant and not at all faded, and there's no moisture or other damage. It appears to be hinged to the backing (not laid down). This little drawing would make a fine acquisition for the collector of Thieme's work. .
