Painting - 10" x 13" / Frame - 13" x 16" DESCRIPTION:
Beautiful California landscape depicting a view of Mt. Tamalpais, in Marin County just north of San Francisco.
Oil on canvas-board. Circa 1920's.
Unsigned but possibly attributable to Selden Gile (1877-1947).
Has a type-written paper label on the back, which reads: "Mt. Tamalpais, Marin County / Selden Gile.
Mounted in a period gold-painted, carved wood Arts and Crafts frame, possibly original to the painting.
This painting is quite beautiful and appears to have many of the attributes of the work or Selden Gile, including the style of brushwork and colors. However, it is unsigned and I don't know for sure that it is by Selden Gile. I can not guarantee that it is a Selden Gile painting, so I am just selling it as "possibly attributable" to the artist, and in any case, it is a very nice early 20th century California oil painting of Mt. Tamalpais.
PLEASE NOTE: I will not be able to accept returns for this piece on the basis of authorship. The painting is unsigned and I can not state that it was definitely painted by Selden Gile, although I personally believe it was probably painted by him. AGE: Circa 1920 - 1930. CONDITION:
Good condition, as shown in the photos and with the following noted: Light separation or crazing to the paint in some of the darker areas. Could possibly use a light cleaning at some point. It appears that the canvas-board support has been cut down by about 1" (painting measures 10" x 13" but the "VADUN" canvas panel label states that the size is 10" x 14").
The frame has a darkened patina from age and overall light wear, as shown. HISTORY:
I bought this painting many years ago from an estate - sale in Oakland, California. No other previous collection or ownership history is available. PLEASE NOTE :
The low opening offer, with , is not meant to reflect upon the actual monetary value of the piece. My sales are structured this way to encourage offerding and to allow the final sale price to be determined by the buyers. ~ please click on image for high definition photos ~
