🔥 Antique Old 19th American Folk Art Great Lake Erie Ohio Seascape Oil Painting:

This is a finely rendered and historically significantAntique Old 19th c. American Folk Art Great Lake Erie Ohio Seascape Oil Painting on canvas, likely dating to the 1870's - 1890's. This artwork is signed: "G. Effinger" in the lower right corner, and bears a partial framer's label on the verso, reading: "Klein & Heffelman," which was located in Canton, Ohio at the time of this artwork's creation. Based on this, I surmise that this was an Ohio painter who depicted the only large body of water around, the Great Lake known as Lake Erie. I could not find any information on the artist, but perhaps you know more about them or their work? This piece depicts a Tonalist seascape scene, with tumultuous waves crashing against coastal rocks, aquamarine and deep green ocean waves, and several sailboats in the distance. In the sky above, deep pink clouds are visible overhead. Approximately 28 1/2 x 39 1/2 inches (including frame.) Actual artwork is approximately 20 3/4 x 31 7/8 inches. Good condition for age, with one small tear to the canvas in the upper right corner, and moderate scuffing, scratches, gilding loss and material loss to the original period 19th century gilded wood frame (please see photos.) Acquired in Pasadena, California. If you like what you see, I encourage you to make an Offer. Please check out my other listings for more wonderful and unique artworks!
About Klein & Heffelman of Canton, Ohio:
Looking Back: State-of-the-art musical technology was displayed a century ago

The advertisements were placed in The Evening Repository about 100 years ago, and they hawked musical equipment that no doubt was considered astounding for its sound during that day.

“The Klein & Heffelman store is the only place in town where you can hear side by side for comparison,” one of the ads noted, “a complete line of both the Edison Diamond Disc Phonograph and the Victor Victrola.”

A second K&H ad — printed on the newspaper’s front page under the headline “Edison Phonographs and Victrolas” — promoted a similar announcement.

“We have the only parlors in Canton showing side by side complete stocks of these two famous types of machines.”

But, another store, Kenny’s, offered a competing “Important” advertisement that day.

“We are now agents for the Edison Disc Phonograph, which you will find on our Fourth Floor Piano Dep’t.”
