Pansies in oil on canvas

A lovely small oil painting created in Massachusetts and framed by, Meekins, Packard & Wheat, Inc., of Springfield, MA.  The backing paper shows the label of the long gone department store, which was once very prominent in Western Massachusetts.  The frame itself is rather delicate and has some corner damage. This happens to be common with old gilded plaster frames.

The details and composition are charming and the artist was certainly trained.  The painting certainly shows a great deal of Realism in technique.  No signature is present, so the artist is unknown.

Circa 1910-1920

Offered at $365.-SOLD
