Fine Art/Illinois and D.C. Painter, Carl (Earl) B. Nyquist


     Good evening from Arizona. My question relates to Swedish-born artist Carl/ Earl B. Nyquist, 1888-1959. We recently aquired an Oil on Board signed painting by Mr. Nyquist and beyond some information gathered via Ask Art Website we remain clueless with regard to this 22" x 28" fall landscape with colors so real you can almost hear the leaves Rustle beneath your feet,
     Listed artist we know and mentioned by Peter Falk....
Delighted to hear from you with perhaps an estimate of value.
         Very best regards, Johnathon

I am unfamiliar with Nyquist, but I also see him listed on AskArt.  Not much information there, you are right.  I carry with me a dog-eared copy of Davenports Art Reference from the 1990s. "Earl B. Nyquist, Washington DC Painter, Decorator, Graphics" listed there, and a range of $400-$800.   Yours is a big picture, if in good shape it would be well worth taking some photos of it, and contacting local dealers.  Scottsdale, Sedona-area...both replete with many dealers.  

This auction house had a Nyquist watercolor, lot #87 listed in a 2008 sale.  You might try them?

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.

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: and


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.
