Contact me first if you have less than 5 bids before bidding.
You are bidding here on a large and wonderful museum quality original oil painting by Claire Fejes (1920-1998), which measures 24" by 20" (painting) and 34" by 28" in the frame. My photos do not begin to do it justice. The rich yellows and oranges in the painting are much brighter and more intricate than my photos, but I think you will get the idea.
I'm selling this for a friend, whose family bought it from Fejes in the 1970's. It is in excellent condition.
Please do some research on the values of her larger paintings like this, and I think you'll see that this is priced quite reasonably.
Please call me at (not too early) if you have any questions or comments.
