Expressionist Oil Painting titled "Portrait of R with Scarf" by well listed and collected New York/Provincetown artist Mortimer Borne 1902-1987.He is collected by the Metropolitan Museum of Art,Museum of Modern Art,The Smithsonian and The National Gallery of Art. Although Borne is more widely know for his dry-points I found the charm of a number of his oils hard to resist and will be offering some of them on Ruby Lane.
This painting is an oil on canvas titled and dated on the stretcher, "Portrait of R With Scarf 1970". Stretcher is not that old, many of the offerings from his studio sale were re-stretched for display and sale . However, this stretcher does have the sale inventory number on the back..Oil Painting is 25" x 20 ", Framed dimension is 31" x 26".
I believe the sitter is his wife. Frame is new to the painting. Painting is in very good condition and signed by the artist.
