Question
Native American riding bareback
Native American riding  
Dear Stuart,
Attached are pictures of an oil painting on panel. Although the work is unsigned the execution strikes me as that of an accomplished illustrator working in the manner of N.C. Wyeth. If you could shed any light on who the artist might be it would be much appreciated.
Regards,

Ernest

Answer
Ernest,
What a terrific picture!  My immediate thought is for you to contact
Thomas Nygard in Bozeman, Montana.  Thomas Nygard Fine Art  
www.nygardgallery.com   Tom is world reknowned for his knowledge of American Western art.  He can help you ascertain what you have, might recognize the artist immediately, maybe even identify the Native American warrior depicted!

Talk to Tom about restoring this fine painting, too.  Many times a dealer will prefer to buy an unrestored painting and have their own experts work on it.  I sense this painting deserves some attention.  

Best of luck,
Stu

Expertise

American Fine Art Paintings.
Oils, Watercolors, Sketches. Nineteenth and early Twentieth Century. Hudson River School, Pennsylvania Academy, Cape Ann artists, Ash Can, Woodstock, Florida Indian River, American Impressionists, etc. I can provide some background about artists and perhaps a rough appraisal or guidance towards obtaining a value. I am acquainted with many of the best American art dealers and auction houses. Original works only, I do not follow the print market. I do NOT field questions about prints.

Important to know
I am not expert in European art. I encourage you to send questions on European artists to other experts on this service. NO PRINTS:I encourage you to seek help on prints elsewhere. Two sites come to mind: www.artoftheprint.com and www.philaprintshop.com

Experience

I have been collecting original American Fine Art for over 20 years. I have curated art shows, and I have served as a dealer, providing appraisals and guidance for the last 8 years.
