Large Original Portrait Painting By Aiden Lassell Ripley, Young Woman In Riding Attire, Signed & Dated 1935

IMG_6132

Large portrait painting by Aiden Lassell Ripley (American, 1896-1969) of Lexington, Massachusetts. Untitled. Watercolour signed and dated 1935. The portrait painting displays an attractive young lady in outdoor or riding attire. It has not been examined outside the frame, but it’s possible there’s a name or title on the rear. This painting was acquired in Western Massachusetts, so it’s likely the background scenery is of the Berkshires. Painted in late autumn or winter of 1935. The colours are vibrant for a watercolour of this age, with no age related issues. Fantastic details and composition. No damage to the watercolour. The mat has some spotting and a small light stain on the bottom right side corner. The portrait is framed in a large intricate gilded frame. Some minor water damage to the plaster of the gilded frame along the bottom portion, with a few small pieces of missing plaster. The portrait painting can hang as it is, or the watercolour can be re-matted and the gilded frame repaired.

Dimensions: 32.5″ x 38.5″ (window 19.5″ x 24″)

Large Antique Oil on Canvas, Gentlemen in Formal Attire, Lovely Original Portrait

il_fullxfull.400815379_brtx

SOLD

Offering an early 20th century (1900-1910) antique oil painting of two gentlemen and a young butler. Unsigned, but this was generally the case with many portraits from this era. The original frame, which is no longer present, would have displayed a brass plate with the family name and the artists details. This portrait was painted by a highly skilled painter, with an excellent grasp of using loose brush strokes for a formal painting. A very desirable style, showing great skill. The artist was very gifted and likely schooled in Europe. This painting was obtained in the New York City area.

The condition of the painting is excellent, with no areas of significant damage. A very fine example with some creases showing the stretcher from behind. It has a beautiful clean finish and a glossy older varnish present, which has protected the paint. The frame is suited well to the painting, but not the original frame.

Size: 19.5″x30.5″

Portrait of a Stunning Young Lady, By George Hill, Dated 1930

Portrait of a Beautiful 1930s Lady
Dated 1930
By George Hill (1898-1969)
Stunning Large Scale Painting in Gilt Frame
Oil on Canvas
Framed 39″ x 43″
Offered at $2400.- SOLD

Offering a beautifully painted portrait of a young lady in a seated pose, with Classical styled clothing. The style has it’s roots in the 19th Century Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. There are several features, which indicate Pre-Raphaelite elements and overall feel. The composition and colours are exceptional. A very well painted portrait, with fantastic detail. The painting is nearly scaled to life-size, therefore the painting is rather large.
The gilt frame is of a very high quality, consisting of two frame layers. The gilding is in fine condition, with only minimal areas of it scratched off. The frame is very well constructed and heavy. Definitely suited to a finely painted portrait. It appears the frame was custom made from the same period, meaning it was likely original to the painting.
There are many fine cracks and puckers in the painting, but no missing paint or fading. Vibrant colour and details make it timeless. The paint seems to be firmly affixed to the high quality canvas. The painting hung over an old New England fireplace mantle, hence the distressed texture to the paint surface.
She’s absolutely lovely!
