Howard Rollins Loy (1898-1980) came to California in 1929. Then in the 1930's he started studying art and painting with some very well know artists of the day-Sam Hyde Harris, Sergei Bongart, Leon Franks, and Christian Von Schneidau, and became a painter. His works seem to be somewhat rare; over the years I have only seen a few of them . But they are always of a professional nature, and his style is mostly similar to his teacher Sam Hyde Harris. The painting I have here is a lovely rendering of the pines along the coast in central California. It is in excellent condition, and has more of a midcentury style frame . It is 25x30 in size (image only) and is ready to hang. Another fine painting from the gallery of Vander Molen Fine Art, where you may find a large selection on the internet.
