Not so much interested in selling but it's been in my family for years and would love any info. I'm in NJ so maybe just a really old boardwalk sketch?

Hello,

This is very much in the style of American Illustration art, which I specialized in at Illustration House in NYC. However, "Batch" would be a nickname. If it is alright with you, I will check with some old colleagues to see if they have come across nickname before and if it is attributed to a particular artist.

That would be wonderful. Thank you. I've been curious about this picture and its history for years.
Expert:  Nora replied 10 months ago.

Hello,

I will contact them and let you know if there is a lead on "Batch".

Hi,

Thank you for your patience.

My colleagues in Illustration Art could not come up with a comparable nor a known nickname of "Batch". There was an cartoonist from that era named, CD Batchellor, however the style of your picture does not match with that artist.

If you like, I can opt-out and open your question to all the experts again at no additional charge.

Please let me know how you would like to proceed.

please do. As long as no additional charges are incurred that would great. I'm really wanting to unravel the mystery of Batch. Thank you again for all your help.
