Customer Question
Hello, I have a painting...
Hello, I have a painting that was framed in NYC by S. Friedman on 65 East 9th Street near broadway, NY tel was STUYVESANT 9-5178. I do not know the date or orgin but the painting is pretty nicely done and looks like a real piece of art and not some amateurish job. The piece is approx 13"x10" and is of a women from the bust up with a red background.
I would love to know the origin of it and the artist if anyone can help. The framing was done with the orig stretcher put in a gold painted frame. There might be a signature in the corner but I cannot tell and cannot figure out how to take the frame apart.

Hi,

Please send some clear, in-focus, close-up images of the surface so I can see the texture and a view of the backside (do not remove from frame).

Is there anything I can do to get a value or further identification of that or even an approx year of the piece or the frame?
Antique Expert: Nora, Expert in Fine and Decorative Arts: Renaissance through Contemporary replied 2 years ago

Hi,

The painting, based on the style of her "Christy Girl" (a la Howard Chandler Christy) clothing and hair, as well as the stretchers on the back side from circa 1905 - 1910.

She is loosely based on the 'look' of women idealized by illustrators at the time and the Coca-Cola girl model.

The gilded frame is Arts & Crafts era style or circa 1905-1910.

The Friedman tag with the phone number STuyvesant 9-5178 was implemented in the 1940's. It is more likely the painting was sold through them as opposed to re-framed by them.

Value os based on comparables, an unsigned early 20th century painting of a woman in gilded Arts & Crafts frame would have a suggested insurance or replacement value of $800 on today's market.

is there little chance of a signature under the edge of the framing?
Antique Expert: Nora, Expert in Fine and Decorative Arts: Renaissance through Contemporary replied 2 years ago

Hi,

Usually there is not a signature under the frame. If signed, the framer rarely covers the signature. This is also a rather 'intimate' portrait for its time and in terms of societal norms for that era, its not unusual for this to be unsigned
