DEAN CORNWELL (1892-1960) large painting commemorating 300th anniversary of New

86 cm x 116cm

 DEAN CORNWELL (1892-1960) painting which was executed in 1953 for a New York Life Insurance Co. calendar, in commemoration of the 300th anniversary of the incorporation of New York City. The painting is meticulously painted and I contacted auctions dealing with illustration art to see if it might be a study for the finished work. The response is that it is most likely simply a work after Cornwell, so it is offered as an impressive decorative piece. There are some small rips and tears in the canvas, as acquired, and one more small one acquired since the photos were taken. Cornwell was born in Louisville and studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and later at the Art Students League in New York and at the Harvey Dunn School of Illustration in Leonia, New Jersey. He is considered one of America's leading illustrators of the 20th century, and works easily reach mid five figures at auction. Ask for more detailed close-ups of the damaged areas.
