These strikingly bright colours are either a characteristic of American art unfamiliar to me, or a recent addition or - far worse than that - the symptom of an oleograph finished by hand. You may inspect the canvas' brim to look for any signs of paper between the varnish and the textile.

There must be a specific narrative to this image, a once commonly known story that might well have given rise to popular prints. Which, in their turn, could be glued to panel or linen and made into mock-paintings: oleographs. Hope I'm wrong.

One can see things much more clearly in real life, so impressions from a photograph aren't a certainty, but your picture there really doesn't look quite right to me either. It isn't just an issue of the odd luridly bright blue, it's the very simplistic nature of the colouring too. It's exactly the same blue used repeatedly, the same yellow etc, where it isn't the colour (applied paint) that looks as if its defining detail (as it should) but rather the different colours look like decoration over detail that's already there. Hence it looks more coloured than painted. And that disparity between the apparent detail and the simplistic colouring just doesn't look congruent. I've quickly looked at a few pictures of the likes of John Lewis Krimmel, though, and there are some similarities re the simplicity and re the reflection of the same tones, and someone painting similar scenes would likely be following in that style. And although I'm not familiar with how common the "F" is on a sack of flour like that, you do effectively have an "F F" there.

It might just be the photo, but for the record, I can't see the craquelure that one should expect to see either.

How really sure are you that that's an oil? Have you tried just simply tapping the surface with your finger tips? If there is paper in there, you can hear the difference in the sound.

Thank you for you valued opinion Job
Yes Im 100% sure it is oil on canvas also I think colors on uploaded picture are little different from original, possibly the light reflection, originally painting is darker. the craquelure its visible all over the painting. Im trying to upload some more pictures of close ups & back of the painting, but for some reason it will not let me, I will try again asap

Please, what do you mean with "large painting" in your title? What is the exact size? Could it be 13,98 in X 20,87 in?

good morning Saintluc & how are you
I always respected & admired your opinion & expertise on this forum, to me you are one of the best & knowledgeable member on this site, you where always very helpful & professional to me & other members of this forum, so please imagine my surprise when you responded to my post with insult & disrespect.
Responding to your question...yes it is large painting aprox 30 inches x 24 inches (see attached photos) & no I did not fabricated measuring tape, the tape is original, I bought it at Home Depot

arb I have no idea or clue, how is you post related to my painting, for some reason you are very secretive with you opinions, you like to show this forum that you know a lot but you are not going to reveal the full secret or the full information you possess, let me help you here little bit...there is still some people buying artwork from dealers galleries & auction houses, not only thrift stores & garage sales (nothing wrong with this at all I do it all the time) so to answer you secretive post....YES I purchased this painting at Stephensons in May 2014 but please dont tell anyone I want this as a TOP SECRET
have a great day

????????????????????????????
arb: No, I have overtaken Stepenson's and this auction that P/K/S did'nt judge usefull to quote. Since the photo of Stephenson's shows the same frame, it is sure that this painting is from the said auction and I would'nt need to ask about the size with the catalogue on my desk. In fact, I had followed the tracks and I am on an auction of 2005 with no photo but a painting with title and comments that suit (as we say in french) "comme un gant" (like a glove) to this painting. The real size out of frame, and not "aprox" would have made a serious clue.
But everybody here will understand that at this hour I have suddenly lost all interest in this case, except for my personnal knowledge.

P/K/S:
saintluc did not respond with "insult and disrespect".
He asked for the size, and then suggested a size!

The suggested size was from a find in a 2005 auction, as saintluc explains in his reply. That you perceive that as an attack on you makes no sense at all.

Earlier the forum was more strict in requiring that all information about an artwork was provided right from the start. You should not have to ask about such things.

And BTW, the measures of a painting, as used in a catalogue, is the measure of the stretcher, not the inside (or outside!) of the frame. You should measure it at the back.

Regards,
Vietato

PS: saintluc tells you he is not coming back to this topic after your tirade against him.

Vietato, I did not tirade saintluc in anyway, when he asked & suggested the size of 13,98 in X 20,87 in...I felt that he is making fun of me & I took it as an insult, that is all to it, no conspiracy theory, no intent to tirade, only expressed my feelings.
BTW I did measured this painting like many other ones, at the stretcher, pictures I included show front of the painting just for precautions of not being accused of showing back of different painting :)

I forgot to mention that "13,98 in X 20,87 in" would be converted from "35,5 x 53 cm" just for your convenience!

Saintluc's humorous post is the nicest reaction you can hope for if you withhold us the auctioneers' expertise and cause us to waste research and knowledge on questions long answered. So don't bore us pretending to feel insulted. You feel found out. Deal with it.
