I have a very old panting called "the river of dreams" by a artist named "packer" I'm looking for info on this painting, anyone help???
I ran Mr. Pacher's Marblehaed Gallery in the 60's. He painted on site at similar sites many times over the years. And was in the habit of recreating his paintings in studio numerous times in the same format and smaller versions for sale as originals. There are therefore, many similar, on site original paintings with the same subject material from different years available and held in collections.
Regarding Richard Packer....I have several, probably 10, paintings by this artist. I used to have a home in The White Moutains. I used to buy Packer Paintings, Myke Morton, and Dennis Chasse. They are large 24x36 paintings, and in great shape. Is there any value. I paid around $400 Ea. Also bought Linda Gray clothe designs.
I have a painting which seems to be oil painted on hardboard approx. 13" x 18" Subject is a lone skier paused on a trail to
( I think ) the approach to Tuckerman`s Revine in New Hampshire. It is signed on the
lower right corner " PACKER " [n
block letters. I think it is by the artist Richard Packer, but I
am not certain. How can I verify?

i have a picture painted by Packer. I was just wondering if Richard Packer painted it. There is a woman and mountains and 2 lepoards in the picture. Any help would be appreciated
There is only one original for each site. I happen to know because I own one of his site originals, and purchased it from around 1992. He made studio copies (painting of paintings) that where smaller in size to the original. Most all of them where done in his studio.

I HAVE TWO ORIGINAL PAINTINGS OF RICHARD G. PACKERS THAT ARE SIGNED AND DATED. OLD NORTH BRIDGE (CONCORD MASS. FALL 1970) AND LOUISBURG SQUARE BOSTON (JULY 1971) DOSE ANYONE KNOW IF MR. PACKER PAINTED A CERTIAN LANDSCAPE DIFFERENT TIMES DURING HIS CAREER OR IS THERE ONLY ONE WORK DONE FOR EACH LOCATION? THE OLD NORTH BRIGE PAINTING IS ON THIS WEB SITE UNDER EXAMPLES OF HIS WORK.
