Watercolor by Sybil Huntington
I have acquired a Sybil Huntington still life watercolor. The San Francisco Chronicle is lying on a table or other surface and the subject matter is of a peach and a branch of red grapes lying on top of the newspaper. It is signed & dated, but the date us illegible under the matt. It looks as though it has been well framed in non-glare glass and the art piece is approximately 8 by12.
I recently purchased a watercolor signed by Sybil Rinehart and dated 1900. It's in the original frame and the backing is cedar lathe. Underneath the lathe are newspapers from St. Louis in the late 1800's! I would like more information about this artist, as well as any indication as to the value of her work. The watercolor depicts a snowy forest, the lighting and shadows makes the painting almost glow. There are two small deer in the piece. Obviously one of her early works done just prior to her marriage and move out west. Simple but beautiful!
I found a "Huntington" painting in Reno,Nevada--It was a folk-art type oil painting in a beautiful frame approximately 3'x4'. It illustrates two doll-like figures sitting on a "Shaker"wicker chair with a large wicker basket of dried grass and flowers arranged beside the chair with a "country" wall paper canvas background--The quality and detail are absolutely superb! I would appreciate any information anyone could provide--Thank you, George McNulty
