LINCOLN GARFIELD MCKINLEY U.S. Presidents Memoriam Litho MONASCH J.H DE BRUYN

An antique Lithograph issued in 1901 in memoriam of three assassinated U.S. Presidents, distributed by the Swedish newspaper Svenska Amerikanska Posten in Minneapolis.

This Rare piece of Americana for your collection. It is a framed memorial Lithograph issued to commemorate the three U.S. Presidents that were assassinated during their term of office (the only U.S. Presidents assassinated up to that date). The Lithograph was printed by The Monasch Litho Company in Minneapolis, and was distributed by the Swedish newspaper Svenska Amerikanska Posten, also in Minneapolis. It carries a 1901 copyright date, by the artist J.H. De Bruyn.

The Lithograph shows portraits of the three assassinated Presidents, J.A. Garfield, Abe Lincoln, and W. McKinley. Below the portraits is the image of a Eagle, Shield, and Sad Woman slumped over a Tombstone that carries the legend: IN MEMORIAM "Gods Will, not ours be done".

The Lithograph is in a wood frame with gesso decoration and is behind glass. The frame measures 21 3/4 inches high, 25-3/4  inches wide, and has some chipping of decorated gesso at the edges. I am sorry about the glare in some photos from camera and lights.

I have not removed the Lithograph from the frame. I do not see any edge tears. I cannot see the very edge of the print of course. There is a very light moisture stains near the edge under the right side of  W. McKinley, see photos. The paper itself appears to be in very nice shape, colors bright. I rate the overall condition of this piece as very good to excellent shape. One of the nicest I've seen out there.

I was able to find only one other example of this image,
and that was in the U.S. Library of Congress.
It appears to be scarce, and is an exceptional piece of Americana.

Mission Styled framed Drypoint etching 'Water'.  Believed to be a German etching. This is told to be a older vintage etching pencil signed.

Purchased from the daughter of an art collector many years ago, this shows a newer framing and matting we were told.

This is a beautiful Arts & Crafts styled landscape / seascape is called 'Water'. The coloration is wonderful.

I've tried so many times to make out the artist. It is close to Artur Bruyteiz ? Please see photos and kindly let me know if you can make
it out.

It measures 21" long by 18.5" w with frame.

George Inness - The Home of the Heron 1893

An abstracted landscape that had an otherworldly look to it was by
George Inness The Home of the Heron 1893

The Home of the Heron was completed late in Innessís career, after he had finally achieved a degree of comfort and success.
The painting is characteristic of his late work, with loosely rendered detail and dim objects that seem bathed in an almost incandescent glow.
The pictureís blurred outlines, broad handling, and delicate, subtle tonalities, as well as the solitary presence of the heron, masterfully evoke natureís stillness and mystery.

Would be a beautiful addition to an Arts and Crafts themed home
Original print copyrighted by the Detroit Publishing Co.
Looks to be in it's original frame as it shows the original label, see photos.
Measuring with frame 18.5" by 14.5" - - small chip lengthwise at bottom of frame

George Inness (May 1, 1825 -August 3, 1894) was an American landscape painter; born in Newburgh, New York; died at Bridge of Allan in Scotland. His work was influenced, in turn, by that of the old masters,
the Hudson River school, the Barbizon school, and, finally, by the theology of Emanuel Swedenborg, whose spiritualism found vivid expression in the work of Inness' maturity.
He is best known for these mature works that helped define the Tonalist movement.

Antique Floral Oil Painting by Nellie Higby 'George Smith' Steele ND ~ White Dogwood

This is a beautiful early original oil painting of what I was told was Dogwood. After research, it does very much look like Kousa Dogwood.
A very beautiful form. Large, white spring flowers, red berries in late summer, scarlet foliage in the fall, and a lovely silhouette in winter.
On the back you will see the writing "Oil Paining by Nellie Higby - (Sister great grandma Smith from North Dakota) Mother George Smith" this was framed years ago without glass.

See below some family history I've dug up on the same family I believe.
Benjamin H. Smith - Blacksmith Central ND, Steele Kidder county, ND
Miss Emma Higby of North Bay, Oneida county NY married a North Dakotan Smith
Four children - Hoton, Nellie, George, Addie of ND

Their father was Knights of the Maccabees and an Independent in political party's
Thank you for visiting. Measurements 13" tall and 11" wide by frame

Original naive oil painting of Forest Fire on oval frame backboard ~ 19th c

Someone with great talent had some extra time on their hands. This painting was
done on the back cardboard of an oval frame. Un-signed.

This was found in an estate purchase Northern Minnesota. Great vivid colors and dynamics in this painting of a intense fire in the woods. There was a large fire in Hinkley Mn 1894, 1918 Cloquet fire was a massive fire in northern Minnesota and also in the far north by the Canadian border around that time

Could be the artist was thinking of either of these when he went to work.
