FINE 1978 Watercolor PAINTING Ohio/Kentucky PHIL FOSTER-$46
When a talented artist such as Phil Foster (1915-1999) is not only an accomplished painter but also an architect, you can count on an attention to detail, and this fine painting is no exception. From the board and batten siding to the louvered shutters, it is a painting that draws one closer.
Phil Foster (1915-1999): Born in Elsmere, Kentucky. He was a painter and art educator who often exhibited in group exhibitions both locally (Kentucky and Ohio), as well as internationally. He received his BFA from the Art Academy of Cincinnati in 1933 as well as an honorary doctorate in 1986. He was an instructor at the University of Cincinnati from 1947 to 1986 in the College of Design, Art, Architecture and Planning.
Lace curtains, wicker rockers and the old timey screen door with Victorian details all make me think a happy old couple lives there. Who wouldn’t love living in a Victorian cottage on a lake?

ANTIQUE Silk Portrait ALICE LLOYD Vaudeville FINE FRAME-18
I could see through the glass that the portrait was printed on something other than paper, so I removed it from its original frame to have a look. It is printed on thin ribbon-type silk or maybe satin. Whatever it is, it’s delicate. Together with the Victorian “tree trunk” gilt gesso frame, it is a miracle they even survived.
Had I discovered this piece back when I was collecting, I’d have had it remounted professionally. However, we’re downsizing; not up-sizing.
Born into a “theater family” in 1873, she took right to the English music halls. She also toured America many times from 1907 until about 1928. She was, in fact, a star, and she’d been performing since she was 17.
I see but a couple small chips in the gesso. (lower right corner and upper left corner) That’s incredible.
