Evening all,

I'm wondering if this piece warrants more research and was looking for some opinions. It's an unsigned work however has a nice look to it and I bought it from an estate sale years ago where I bought some great midcentury and earlier works. This piece had a nice look like it reminds me of an artist but can't put my finger in it. Possibly it's nothing but thought I would gather an opinion or two before I move on. Cheers,

Justin

I think it is a decent artwork.

A reverse image search (with relevant keywords) can reveal similar works.

This is with "oil on paper" (although some of it looks like oil crayon):

Calvin Anderson, b. 1925, shows similarities:

The little circle on your painting as well as on this one seems as if it could be “emblematic” to the artist.

Regards,
Vietato
