For your consideration, an intriguing vintage painting of a Chinese junk. This unsigned oil on canvas painting is almost identical to a 1931 oil painting by Anton Otto Fischer (American, 1882-1962); in addition to identical subject matter, both works display almost exact placement of figures within the composition, color palette, paint handling, and treatment of clouds and background details. It is possible that this work was a study or similar but unfinished work by Fischer, or, that the painting is a vintage copy of the original by another artist. The age of the canvas appears to be of similar vintage to Fischer’s finished painting (see photos). The painting is in good vintage condition and measures 24” x 18” and 28” x 22 ½” framed. A wonderful period piece that shows well with every style of décor, from traditional to mid-century moderne.
