Glenn F. Bastian
I see my sister and other relatives have posted about this interesting member of our family. To view more of his work, contact Carolyn at the Gas City Museum in Gas City, Indiana. As a child and young adult, I knew him only as my Grandad's brother, the artist. Unfortunately, I didn't really appreciate nor did I know the extent or volume of his work until after he died. My family values our heirloom artwork, of which we have many pieces. I get a real kick out of seeing his work for sale on Ebay!

Glen F. Bastian "Garden Flowers"

I am looking for any information on two small original paintings. They are signed on the bottom G. F. Bastian. On the back is a very old paper label handwritten "Garden Flowers" G. F. Bastian. He has signed the front of the oil painting with GFB and is underlined. They are identically framed and appear very old. Any information is appreciated. Someone else on this board wrote a similar post. Maybe I have his two paintings now. I just would love to know the value of these. Thanks, Joyce

I purchased two painting from a shop in the state of Washinton. On the back were stickers...One said "The Farm" G.F. Bastian. handwritten with 1939 below it. Asmall sticker had the address 4458 Carolina St., Gary Indiana. The other was the same except the name of the peice was "Farm in Normandy". No date.
I loved the little cottages and purchased them. They are both about 4 x 5. I would love information about them and the artist. Mary Lou Jones

G. F. Bastian
Good Afternoon,
I am looking for any information on two small original paintings. They are signed on the bottom BFG (the B appears to be underlined) and on the back are very old paper labels handwritten "Garden Flowers" G. F. Bastian. It almost looks like they are painted on wood. They are identically framed and appear very old. They are different but the subject is vases of flowers and the detail is wonderful. I purchased them at an estate sale several years ago. Any information is appreciated.

Glenn Bastian Indiana Dunes paintings

I have about five paitings of the Indiana Dunes by Glenn F. Bastian and several other flowers, landscape and a couple of his Mexican bird feather paintings. I find most intersting his Indiana unes paintings. He apparently, worked for the Indiana Dept of Welfare in the 1930's and lived in Lake County, Indiana which gave him close access to the Dunes.

His work shows a great deal of depth and variety in skills and his larger landscaped are the best.

I Got The Same Painting Only Titled "Cottege And Garden" But This One Is Raised Up Like Real Water Colors Was Used On It. Could It Be The Original?

g.f.bastian painting
A friend gave me a small painting, framed, painted in oils on what seems to be cardboard. Titled "In her garden" by G.F.Bastian a few years ago. It recently fell off the wall, frame cracked and on the back was a number 930 D2. I am guessing it was in a gallery or shop at one time, maybe on consignement. It is a lovely painting of a cottage with flowers and a woman with a basket. Does anyone have any idea of when it may have ben painted or where I can get more info on this artist.

My thanks to Ask Art for their website, if not for them we all would not have any information on this Indiana Artist. I own 25 of Mr Bastian's creations, I have tried for many years to find out about him, I checked with IU Bloomington, IN as well as with John Herron Art, to no avail. Thank you so much.

Bastian
I own two Indiana dune miniatures and a nice small landscape. I believe his work will continue to gain attention and value as he becomes more well-known and more estates come to sale into the art market. My advice, hold on to them and watch the market. Lucky they are also quite nice to hang on the wall as well.

Best,
JDL

Glenn F. Bastain
I'm an Indiana native & discovered his bird paintings @ an antique mall in Muncie & fell in love w/his work. I now own 4 of them. I would like to see some of his landscape work. Also,more history on the bird paintings would be great as well as the artist. I'm planning a trip to the Gas City museum this summer & see what I can find out.

Painting/GF Bastian/
We have a painting that measures approximately 8 X 10. The painting has been in my husband's family for many years. The painting is in the original frame and mat. The painting appears to need cleaning.
My husband's grandparents lived in Gas City Indiana as children.
On the back of the painting there is a brown paper label.
The label has the following:
The Glenn Studio
Po Box 57
South Charleston, W. VA (printed)
In handwriting the following has been written:
Painted in England 8-24
"Oea Danking England
G.F.Bastian
Would like to know the history of the artist and if anyone knows the subject of the painting that would be great.
Karen

The pictures I have by G. F. Bastain are dated 1936. When was he born/died?
I read he was known for his landscapes. Did he do many paintings of flowers in vases?

Glenn Bastian paintings
I'm was looking on the internet for information on two G.L. Bastian paintings I have and came across this site.

The two paintings I have are "Peonies" and "Snapdragons".

It was interesting to find out that he's from Gas City, IN which isn't really that far from where I live in Frankfort, IN.

Glenn Bastian was my grand uncle. He was the brother of my dad's mom. I had the joy of visiting his home and studio in Gas City, IN as I was growing up. I would love to find out if anyone has some of his paintings.
