Vintage Framed Artwork Listed Artist 1 thumbnailVintage Framed Artwork Listed Artist 2 thumbnail
Really neat vintage, mid century, art etching. Nice detail. Titled "Jumper", print is signed by artist, Joseph Samuel Donat, and dated 1949. It's number 5 in a limited edition of 50. Printed by the artist in black ink on soft, cream laid paper with margins and signed and dated with pencil. Doesn't mean that 50 were actually made, its just the number he planned on making originally. Could have been only the five created. Facts about Joseph Samuel Donat: He is a listed Artist, found in "Artist in California, 1786-1940" by Edan Hughes. An American, born in 1919 in Pomona, California, and passed away in 1998. He is known for his wood engravings and watercolor painting. He taught college for 25 years and was an eccentric recluse and later lived in Pasadena until his passing. He had exhibitions of his work at the San Diego FA Gallery in 1941 and also at the Laguna Beach AA in 1951. The image size is approximately 4 1/2" wide x 3 1/2" high. Frame size is 14 3/4" wide x 11 3/4" high. Looks like an archival white rag mat cut out over art. Nicely framed. Only $250 or best offer. A great deal for a vintage framed etching where similar engravings of his, and not as nice looking, have sold at auction for much more than that amount. Call Ken at show contact info
