Description
Large Richard Merkin The Tramp Steamer, oil on canvas, 62 x 78 inches, 62.8 x 78.8 x 0.8 inches framed, signed and titled twice verso The Tramp Steamer or The Road Is All, Terry Ditenfass 57th St., NYC label verso dating the work 1983-1985. Original or period strip molding. Note that the collection had a Better Days series catalogue and poster from the late 80s and a 1992 Helander Gallery, Palm Beach Recent Paintings poster in their collection and we surmise this work may be from the Better Days series perhaps acquired in the Helander show.
Condition
Canvas and paint in good vibrant condition however please note that the artist incorporated a variety of painting techniques and paint varieties into the composition including spattering accents and it is difficult for us to confirm if all spots on the surface are original but we believe the vast majority are artist intention. There is some foxing to the rear of the canvas that does not appear to have migrated to the front. Rear label wear and light scattered frame wear.
