This is a great piece. It has been some time since I had a Russ Webster painting. The market seems to have really appreciated for his work. For those not familiar with the artist, I have included his biography below.
This must have been a work that the artist really thought was particularly good as he gave it as a gift to a couple on their 25th Wedding Anniversary. A wonderful oil on canvas board measuring 16 x 20 inches.Painting is in excellent condition. There is a slight layer of surface grime that could be cleaned but it is still really beautiful as it is. Looks as though it is the original frame that is complimentary and ready to hang.
On the back of the canvas board is the inscription the artist wrote to the people for the gift. Frame measures 19 3/4 x 23 3/4 inches. For those not familiar with the artist his biography from askart reads: Russ Webster was a long time resident of Lynn Massachusetts and died in 1984. He worked as a commercial artist at General Electric in Lynn Massachusetts.He studied in Rockport with Wayne Morrell, Paul Strisick and especially Emile A. Gruppe, who remained a long time friend and traveling companion. His studies with Gruppe took him to Florida, Northern New England and Europe. He paints in a characteristic Cape Ann style clearly influenced by Emile A. CHECK THE PICTURES ON THIS GREAT PIECE. If you have any questions regarding the work, please dont hesitate to ask.
