Old Overholt Rye Oleograph
This is a great sign I found years ago. A sweet scene. Artist's name is Rudolph Bohunek, an emigree from Bohemia back in 1907. He found his way to New Orleans and was commissioned to do portraits of a large number of prominent New Orleans citizens. These portraits are now installed at the Louisiana Museum of History. Bohunek returned to Bohemia from 1911 to 1913, then came back to the United States and, arriving in Chicago, opened an art school.
This oleograph, litho on canvas, looks like an oil painting. Original factory frame, too.
As found, excellent condition. Noticing the tape on the back I assume there has been some restoration at some time, but looks perfect on the front. No damage.
26" x 38" including frame.
