NEW Art Book will include Willard Metcalf
N.Y. Times bestselling authors Les and Sue Fox are doing research for a new book titled "The Art Buyers Handbook" to be published in 2011 or 2012. This book will feature stories of real people who bought valuable art at garage sales, flea markets, local auctions and estate sales. Did you know that a masterpiece by Joseph Decker ("Ripening Pears") was bought at a garage sale in 2001 for $5, and sold to the National Gallery Of Art in 2004...for $1,000,000? If you or someone you know has purchased a genuine painting by Willard Metcalf for a fraction of its AskArt value, we would like to publish your story in our book. Your name will be kept confidential, unless you want us to publish it. The facts must be verified, and we will need photos of your painting (original oil or watercolor, not a print, lithograph or limited edition.) Thank you. Les Fox.

WLM was a great animal lover and from hundreds of signatures I've seen never Leroy. Check Elizabeth DeVeer's book "Sunlight and Shadow".


Le Roy 1896 painting
I have a painting of a dead rabbit and a pigeon hanging upside down it is signed LeRoy 1896. I would love to know something about this artist. I don't know if it is a watercolor or oil painting.

"Le Roy" signed watercolor
I have a watercolor dated and signed LeRoy 1896. Could this be Willard LeRoy Metcalf or some other LeRoy ? The subject is a dead duck and squirrel hanging upside down from a nail.


Desperate to find name of painting and artist
I have a painting oil on canvas of a slave women cooking at a fire place while a white women sits in a chair dressed up with a hat an an umbrella beside the chair. She is looking at the women. There is also a cat eating in the middle of the floor. It is an antique. I cant get a pic of the signiure but it looks like it begins with M. and then there is a W..... I hav a pic

Willard Metcalf
I was wondering if anyone would know if he painted any Maine ocean/farm scenes? I saw one painting at a museum and would like to know more about him and what museums might have some of his work if I were to try to get there! Thanx in advance

Paul A. Armstrong, Sr.

Watercolor Le Roy 1896
Did Willard Le Roy Metcalf work in watercolors and did he ever sign his work "Le Roy"



I am a bit confused by two of the biographies posted.

Metcalf is described as the son of a blue collar family by owen Gallery and the son of a violinist by Pierce Galleries. Would the respective writers of the biographies, please clarify the point.

Thank you !

Mary Webb

The Terra Museum in Chicago has scheduled a gallery talk about Willard Leroy Metcalf on Thursday, November 9, noon to 1 pm. The speaker will be Margaret F. Farr, an Independent Art Historian
