I just stumbled on a beautiful Basset Marsh abstract

Customer Question

Hi Kim,
I just stumbled on a beautiful Ruth Basset Marsh abstract painting. It is signed "Ruth Marsh" and is roughly 4ft X 1ft. I've tried to reach out to her grandchildren via Flickr but have yet to garner a response. I found the piece at a local auction hidden behind a bunch of old frames. Do you have any information on her? It is a stunning painting and I would love to know more.
Kind regards,

I have not found more information on the artist than you likely have as well.

I will not be able to respond back after opting-out.
I do hope you find the information that you seek.
