Beautiful 12" x 16" oil on canvas landscape entitled "Early Autumn" (1972) and signed by famed artist Charles Radoff , (1894 – 1986) - Russian painter (born Xavier Basil Radoff).This painting is in beautiful shape, and is in its original frame. The photos that have a 'whitish hue' to them are from the flash of the camera. The colors are very vibrant on the entire painting! Charles Xavier Basil Radoff - (C.
