P E Chillman
Hi...I have a signed P E Chillman which was purchased Many many years ago by a distant relative from the Closson Art Galleries in Cincinnati. It is a landscape of two cows grazing near blooming trees with a house and a barn in the distance. i do not know where he did the art work
While I have never seen a painted portrait by P.E. Chillman before,I would not catagoricaly rule it out either.His bread and butter appears to be a photography portrait studio that he ran in philadelphia so we can at least say an interest in portraits did exist.As far as New York goes he definately did paint landscapes there. I would have to get out my notes to verify the exact location of the New york painted landscape in my collection.
Hope this helps,
I have a family portrait that an antique dealer feels is a Chillman. It is not signed. Where did he paint. Did he do wealthy family portraits in the Hudson River Valley of New York?
