1894 - 1978
About the Painting: Good condition. There has been a small repair to about an inch of the canvas at the top of the parrot's wing. The canvas is very dry and would benefit from a surface clean and re-varnish. However, the painting looks good, as is. The frame is hand carved and a little scuffed, but in good condition.
The Boat Builder, oil on canvas, signed initials/dated '80,
28" x 23" sight, 32.5" x 26.5" frame.
The initials of the artist appear to be W.Y.K., but the first letter may be something else. This painting is a faithful, and very skilled, copy of the Norman Rockwell painting in the collection of Peabody Essex Museum, Salem, Massachusetts.
The Procession, oil on canvas, signed l/r,
About the Painting: Excellent condition. The painting is signed "L. Osbert" in the lower right corner. Nothing is known of this artist, but the original Rockwell painting was offered for sale a few years ago by Illustration House in New York City. This image and the one of the original painting compare most favorably.
