DESCRIPTION:Offered is this estate fresh and new to the marketplace, fantastic, large format, Olive C. Moore signed,mid-20th century North Shore, Rockport, Massachusetts School of Painting, framed American nautical oil on canvas. There's a small puncture/hole and rear, old canvas patched repair on the lower left side (deep pthalo blue shadow of the boat reflection in the water.) This area was apparently professionally repaired and in-painted by either the artist or by a professional painting restorer, since the damage isn't noticeable upon viewing. In the spirit of transparency, honesty and forthrightness, this small condition issue is being mentioned. It's not fatal, appreciable or depreciating. The painting remains a large scale and quite remarkable, mid-20th century vintage oil on canvas and notable example of the Rockport, MA (North Shore) School of American Post-Impressionist oil painting, which blossomed after the conclusion of WWII and which put a strong emphasis on depicting harbor, fishing, nautical and maritime themes, with a distinctly painterly approach. Absolutely beautiful and quite large, it would have a real presence anywhere it was hung in your home, vacation retreat or office. Splendid.
CONDITION:Good to Very Good overall vintage condition.(*Please scroll down the page to view enlarged photos below.Thank you.)
