Abstract expressionist painting by well listed American artist Robert McChesney (1913 -2008). The artist signed at the lower center "McChesney". It measures 34" by 26" and there is a title on the stretcher, "Fragments of Protection". Nicely framed in a gold leaf frame. The condition of the painting is excellent, the frame has some small scratches and tiny looses. Contacted Bonhams, specialist confirmed it was by R. McChesney, but said it fell below their current value minimums.
On the reverse the tag described it as by "M. Cheney", and that probably came about as a result of the Feingarten Galleries handwritten label on reverse that also says artist was "M. Cheney". WH
