Lot No. 0505

Manufacturer: 18

Artist: Charles Child

Description: Charles Child (American, Pennsylvania, Maine, 1902-1983) egg tempera and oil on Masonite. Pictured is a very stylish treatment of a mountain range, possibly Maine, with spindly conifers, emerging fall colors and distant hill tops visible above the clouds. Housed in its original wormy chestnut frame with linen liner. Unsigned on the front but marked by a preprinted paper label on the back which reads “From the Studio of Charles Child Lumberville Bucks County Pennsylvania.” There is also an artist’s label on the back which denotes all the components used in the painting such as medium, surface prep and varnish. Sight size is 29 1/4 by 35 1/4 inches and overall size with frame is 37 1/4 by 43 1/4 inches. Good original condition with a 3/8 inch paint chip middle right. Probably would benefit from a gentle cleaning
