HERE IS AN ORIGINAL, FRAMED, PASTEL OF A WINTER, NIGHT TIME, LANDSCAPE WITH COTTAGE, TREES AND TRACKS IN THE SNOW---THAT LEADS TO---LEAVE IT TO YOUR IMAGINATION!! THIS PIECE OF ART IS SIGNED BY THE ARTIST: A. GUNDERSON IN THE LOWER LEFT CORNER. ANDREW SEVERIN GUNDERSON WAS BORN IN IOWA IN 1888. HE LIVED AND WORKED IN THE MIDWEST---PRIMARILY ILLINOIS---AREA MOST OF HIS LIFE AND DIED IN ILLINOIS IN 1964.

GUNDERSON WAS A SELF TAUGHT ARTIST WHO WAS PAINTING PROFESSIONALLY IN HIS TEENAGE YEARS, AND HAD HIS OWN STUDIO AT AGE EIGHTEEN. HE MIXED HIS OWN COLORS FOR HIS PASTELS AND USED HIS OWN TREATED PAPERBOARD TO CREATE HIS PASTELS. MOST OF HIS PASTELS ARE LANDSCAPES WHICH FEATURE WARM WEATHER SCENES WITH TREES, WATER, A ROAD, AND PASTORAL SERENENESS. THUS THIS SUBJECT IS A RARE DEVIATION FROM HIS MORE COMMON PAINTINGS, BUT HIS PAINTING IS VERY DETAILED IN THE USE OF CONTRASTING PASTEL COLORS.

IN THIS MANNER VARYING LIGHT INTENSITIES ANYWHERE ON THE PAINTING WILL REFLECT CHANGING COLOR SCHEMES. THE ORIGINAL ELEGANT, WOOD AND COMPOSITION FRAME, IS FROM THE EARLY 1900's.

THE CORNERS FEATURE HIGH RELIEF AND THE ENTIRE FRAME HAS A WARM GOLD AND BRONZE FINISH WHICH HAS BEEN CLEANED AND RETOUCHED. THE OUTSIDE DIMENSIONS OF THE FRAME ARE 32 1/2 INCHES LONG; 18 1/2 INCHES WIDE; AND 2 1/4 INCHES IN DEPTH. THE IMAGE MEASURES 21 1/2 INCHES X 9 3/4 INCHES. THE FRAME AND PASTEL ARE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION CONSIDERING THEIR AGE. THE PASTEL DOES SHOW MINOR SMUDGING ON THE HOUSE. THE BACK HAS BEEN REMOVED; THE GLASS CLEANED; AND THE BACK RESEALED WITH ACID FREE CORE BOARD AND BROWN PAPER. THE FRAME IS FITTED WITH WIRE AND EYELETS TO FACILITATE IMMEDIATE HANGING OR DISPLAY. A VERY ELEGANT, FRAMED, ANTIQUE, ORIGINAL PASTEL, BY ARTIST ANDREW GUNDERSON, TO DISPLAY IN THE HOME, OFFICE, SHOP, OR STORE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR VIEWING.
