We are offering this beautiful antique oil painting of Madonna and Child, circa late 19th Century. The art is done in the manner of, or school of Dalmatia. The painting is on a curved piece of wood with restoration on the entire length of the center. I have taken photographs of the back and front. Call or email if you need additional photographs. The art measures 15 ½" x 14 ½" and the custom made frame is from the famous House of Heydenryk in New York, it measures 24 ¾" x 22". Frames from the House of Heydenryk are highly regarded and very much sought after. In 1976, this piece was purchased by the owner of Seaside Art Gallery from Parke-Bernet Galleries in New York. (Co-founded by Otto Bernet and Hiram H Parke in 1939, in 1964, having become America's largest auction house was purchased by Sotheby & Co. London, England. After 1964 the firm became Sotheby Parke Bernet & Co.)
FYI: Henry Heydenryk, Jr. (1905-1994) was a Dutch American frame maker, historian, author and designer. He was the fourth generation descendant of a family-run business, The House of Heydenryk (Heijdenrijk). Founded in Amsterdam in 1845, the company is one of the world's oldest framing companies. The firm made and supplied reproductions and antiques to the Tate and National Gallery museums in England the Rijksmuseum in Holland and for many other important museums and private collectors including Baron Thyssen-Bornemisza and members of the Rothschild family. In 1936, Henry Heydenryk, Jr. brought the firm to New York City in the United States where he would revolutionize the framing industry by creating new designs and finishes. He supplied both hand crafted frames and antiques to major artists, collectors and museums in the US and Europe. He would also author two books on the art and history of picture framing, The Art and History of Frames: An Inquiry into the Enhancement of Paintings in 1963 and The Right Frame: A Consideration of the Right and Wrong Methods of Framing Pictures in 1964. In the beginning, the American House of Heydenryk was a franchise of the Dutch firm, making period reproductions for artists, galleries and museums. Heydenryk, Jr. would eventually branch out from traditional frame making and design his own mouldings and finishes for contemporary artists in Manhattan under the name The House of Heydenryk, Jr. Inc.
