Eugene Andrew Agafonoff Ukranian/American Artist, Landscape, Oil On Canvas

This auction offers an oil on canvas painting by Ukranian/American artist, Eugene Andrew Agafonoff (Evgeny Andreevich Agafonov). This is a large scale work depicting a valley view landscape painting of a house in the woods and mountains, which I believe to be a scene from the NY Hudson River valley. This painting measures 20" x 25". There are areas where the paint was scratched along the top and along the bottom of the painting. Painting should be cleaned to reveal the vivid and rich colors of the beautiful landscape. While this painting needs some cleaning and restoration, it is a fine example of the artist's landscape and scenery painting after he moved to the United States and settled in the New York area. It also has historic value, as the greater part of this artist's works were lost.
