Louis Jambor
Be careful, some of the paintings alleged to be by Famous Hungarian/American artist Louis Jambor are not his.

The famous original oil of Christ by Louis Jambor valued AT A MILLION DOLLARS has been donated by his grand daughter and her husband to the Union Presbyterian Church in Los Altos, California where it hangs. It is the face of Christ that most Christians relate to Christ. Many prints are available.

Most of the Louis Jambor paintings and perhaps the best ones are still held by the family in Northern California and have never been available to the public.

Need Info on Garage Sale Painting
I bought a Louis Jambor painting at a garage sale for $125 and wish to know something about it. The lady that sold it was 86 yrs old and said it had been handing in her aunt's house since she was a very young child. The scene looks like something out of a French Louis XVI outdoor courting scenario. A gentleman is offering a lady a flower next to a lady holding an umbrella/parasol. On the steps to the right are two gentleman, a lady, and a couple. In the front left foregound is a lady in a blue dress sitting on the ground with a couple in the far upper left background. There is a fountain in the right front foreground. Thanks to someone for helping provide information on this painting. The painting is signed L Jambor in bottom left corner, and painting is in a beautiful gold leaf frame with a golden "bow" at the top of the frame. Thank you, High Dry and Windy

Jambor paintings
I researched the Jambor paintings about two years ago when I decided to sell my Jambor, a large painting with a gold leaf frame, the one with women at the piano called The Rehearsal. The going rate at auction for these canvas reproductions was about $1400 back then. You can purchase them on EBay starting at about $200, but then there is shipping to consider, and insurance, so you would pay closer to $400 if no one bid against you. These were popular pieces in the mid-50's as living room decor. My bet is that most people that own them today inherited them from older relatives. My guess is that most are worth about the same amount. The trick is to find a buyer who wants to own it! :)

L.Jambour Picture
An old german man gave my dad a picture about 50 years ago. It is a large picture that hangs in a living room or such. It is in a beaufiful heavy gold frame. It shows a real nice home with steps leading to a garden It has women dressed in Pink and men dressed in blue, like in George Wasington's day with white wigs etch. Some are sitting on benches or just strolling thru a garden. It is signed on the left bottom corner by L.Jambor or something like that. I believe it is a print. It ia beautiful. It hangs in my living room. When my mother passed away she left it to me. I have had it for 22 years. I don't know what it is called. Could you just tell me a little about it. It is so pretty. Thanks carolyn

infor on Louis Jambor
I've done a bit of reseach on the elusive Mr. Jambor and here's what I have uncovered.

Louis Jambor (1884-1955) Born a Hungarian on August 1, 1984, died June 1955. Jambor attended the Royal Art Academy in Budapest and also studied in Dusseldorf, Germany, migrated to the United States in 1923 and became an American citizen six years later.

Louis Jambor, a painter and illustrator, is best known for his religious wall decorations in churches, symbolic murals in private homes, and quasi-public buildings. His work in portraiture, genre scenes, and still life is less well known, but equally as masterful and moving. He was a prolific and versatile artist with a wide variety of interests. He is known for his religious paintings, book illustrations and public murals, but is also admired for his portraits, genre scenes and still life works as well. Jambor is especially known for his illustrations for the 1947 version of ‘Her Jo’s Boys’. He also created backgrounds for the animated film version of ‘Gulliver’s Travels’ for which he received screen credit.. He painted dozens of murals in private homes, public buildings and churches, including twenty-six for the hotel New Yorker.

Many of his interior genre scenes were reproduced and distributed through all kinds of outlets: i.e. department stores, furniture stores, art galleries in the mid 1900's. They were very popular for decoration purposes.

I was given a lovely Jambor a few years ago, from reading all these posts, I believe it is entitled ‘Interlude’ … the subject is three ladies (surprise!) … one seated at a piano, one with a violin, the third is holding sheet music … the frame is original to the glass encased print, very ornate, and quite beautiful. I’m no expert, but reading all of these posts it appears to me that we all have a reproduction … and there are many duplicates. I just noticed that one recently sold on eBay for $99 … and another on, currently up for auction, and in poor condition was appraised between $100-200. Perhaps in top condition it would fetch $300-400 … get two people in a bidding war and who knows what could happen. That is my non-expert opinion.

of two women; one on a piano, and another next to her with a violin. By Jambor. This is a copy, from before 1977. If anyone could tell me about it, that would be great. Even just a title or something like that is welcomed.

L. Jambor
I found an old L. Jambor painting in my mothers attic. It apperars to be a print. The name of the painting is 'The Love Letter'. There's nothing written on the back, Louis Jambor is signed on the front. Does anyone have any info about this painting?

Jambor's "Tranquillo"
I have a piece of artwork that I believe to be called "Tranquillo". I have no idea if it's an original or a replica. On the backing paper someone wrote in pencil "Tranquillo by Jambor" in the center then on the top right corner it's written:

752
T.
$1998

Then on the bottom center it says #23.

I don't know if this from some sort of estate auction or what those numbers mean.

I don't see any sort of signature but not sure if it's covered by the bottom of the frame because it looks like it covers some of the picture.

Any input on this?

Help solve mystery
I have a beautiful large original oil of Christ and the 12 at the Last Supper. Signed on right in printed form by L Jambor and on the left by Stan Markiewicz. Is it possible that Louis Jambor might have collaborated with another? Who would Markiewicz be?

The Message
I purchased a painting at an auction for 45 dollars. It shows two women sitting on a victorian sofa in a parlor. One is reading a letter to the other and they are both happy and smiling. It is signed in the lower left L. Jambor. and it says "the Message" in a plate area on the back.

I really can't tell if it is a print or painting, which means it's probably just a print! I'm not sure what it's worth.

Anyway, this painting is so beautiful and powerful.
tks

"Interlude" is written on backing in pencil.3 women, one at piano, one holding a violi and one holding sheet music, as though they are taking a break. I am at a loss for finding info. The painting was hanging on the same wall in my parents home for over 40 years. They have had it for over 50. Any info would be great.

Louis Jambor print/picture
I purchased a louis jamor picture at the good will with two women sitting under a tree on a hillside with the farm/house in the valley below them. This picture looks like to be an original print and is in excellent condition. It look as though from the 40's or 50's era because of the age of the frame it was in. I don't know if furniture stores sold copies of this print and I can't find out any information on this artwork. Can someone please tell me more about this painting/print? I think the good will missed this rare antique I got for 6 bucks!

Christ facing left
I found this picture today hiding behind a picture of my dad from ww2. The picture is of Christ... he's facing left. On the front of the picture is (NB in a diamond)it's on the left side. On the right side of the picture is (L. JAMBOR.). On the back of the picture is another (NB in a diamond) on the left, with a (1P) next to it. To the right of that is (Copyright 1945 N.G. Basevi) and to the right of that is (LITHO IN U.S.A. N.G.BASEVI,INC.)
Can someone please give me more information on the artist and the company that probably reproduced this picture... and what does LITHO mean? What does the 1P mean next to the NB?
Thanks for your help, Penny

Melody of Love
My husband & I inherited
a Louis Jambor painting
from his grandparents.
It is titled Melody of Love. I'm not sure if it's a print or the "real thing". It is a painting of a woman playing the piano while a man is leaning onto the piano watching her.
There is a metal label attached to the frame that shows the title of the painting & the artist. Also, the painting itself is signed
L. Jambor. Let me know if you have any info.
Thank you.

Yet another Jambor
Finally, I come across very useful information about this illusive artist. To my delight and surprise, there seem to be several variations on the artist's "theme". I, for example, have inherited a painting with 3 subjects: all very lovely ladies; one playing piano, one on the harp and the third on violin. It appears in a grand salon, with an exquisite staircase flowing into the foreground. The painting is signed. I can't say more, frankly I don't remember whether there is anything on the back of the frame or not. Would appreciate knowing whether any one else out there has another?

response from ewolfs.com
I received this response to my request for info on Jambor:
Louis (Lajos) Jambor was a Hungarian artist 1884-1955. He came to the
US, where he made lithpgraphs and etchings, was a successful
illustrator, and also a painter and muralist. He was active in New
York
City. A good bio is available in Who was Who in American Art. It's
full of abbreviations but there's a glossary in the book to help you
decipher them.
Best regards.

It is stamped by Windsor (mode styled by Illinois MLDG.CO.Chicage 8 Illinois)along with other numbers (V.2284-59)(595-1 2284). I am curious to know what this painting might be worth. Any ideas?
