Lot 0007
A finely painted pair of portraits done in pen and ink, and wash, on heavy card stock. The paintings were acquired from a private collection, and were purchased by the prior owners in the 1950's. A label on the back identifies the man as Captain Brooks of Portland, Maine. The woman, the other half of the pair, is assumed to be his wife. The excellent technique of the artist, purportedly named Earle, is evident in the rendering of the faces and the accomplished use of shadowing.
The paintings are 3 5/8 " by 2 11/16 " sight size, and the framed size is 5 11/16 " by 5 ". They are in excellent condition, with no flaws of any extent. The frames and backboards are period and appear to be original.
