In examining your photos, I noticed there is a brass plate on the frame. What does that say?

Thank you.

Please know it takes quite a while to locate the name of a painting when it has not changed hands in 36 years.

Kind regards,


Expert:  Doris replied 11 months ago.

Looking for the name of this painting is an impossible task.

I have looked for several hours but have seen many similar paintings by this artist, but they were not identical.

If a painting has not been part of a major exhibition or not been sold for 36 years, there are no public, or perhaps even private, records of its name.

You could try to contact one of the following dealers that advertise they want Dzigurski paintings or have one of his for sale.

There is a possible son named Alexander Dzigurski II (born 1968) who also paints.

See the following source information I found:

"Alexander Dzigurski was (II) born in 1968 in Atherton, California. The son of renowned American painter, Alex Dzigurski, Alexander developed a love of art at a very young age. Traveling with his parents throughout the United States, Canada and Europe, he began to draw and paint intensively.

Graduating from high school, he enrolled at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. There he received training in the studies of anatomy, life drawing, composition and technique. Under the direction of artist Ted Smuskiewicz, Alexander studied oil painting and pastel. During this time at the academy, he also studied watercolor with Irving Shapiro. While in Chicago, he became an active member of the historic Palette and Chisel Academy and exhibited in the Union League Scholarship Competition, as well as the Citicorp Student Exhibit of Chicago.

After graduating from the American Academy in 1990, he earned a scholarship from the Institute of Fine Arts of Los Angeles. Upon moving back to California, Alexander began a dynamic study program with his father, thus leading to his premier exhibit in October of 1990. Inspired by painting nature, he traveled to paint the beauty of the Northwest and California. Alexander has painted in the Grand Tetons, Glacier National Park, the Canadian Rockies and the Oregon Coast. Along with his oil work, he continues to produce watercolors and pastels, while also pursuing portraiture and figure studies.
Palette and Chisel Academy 1989-1990
Oil Painters of America
California Art Club
Submitted December 2003 by Gary Cobb, collector of Dzigurski's work. His source is Cosmopolitan Fine Arts in La Jolla, California."

As you can see, he lives in California. If one of the galleries I listed can give you his contact information, this son or grandson may have the title of your painting.

This is the best I can do for you.

Kind regards,
