Emerson Burkhart –'Canadian Indian Family – Ontario'
40 x 50, oil on canvas, estate stamped.

This is your chance to own one of Burkhart’s last and most colorful large format paintings completed just weeks before he suffered the stroke that took his life in 1969. He spent a portion of the summer painting and fishing in Ontario while staying with the Wikgijig family he befriended several years earlier. One of the elements we find interesting about this piece is the whimsical inclusion of their teenage daughter’s reflection in the mirror on the far right side of the painting. It is in excellent condition and ready to hang.

Emerson Burkhart –'Summer Morning at Hoover Reservoir'
1968, 36 x 48, oil on canvas, signed lower right, Excellent condition.

This exceptionally large painting by Burkhart is full of the humidity so common on sultry summer mornings in Central Ohio. It was Hoover Reservoir and other spots around Delaware County that so often inspired Burkhart to set up his easel and paint. He spoke quite often for his love of the scenery in this area and commented that despite the wonderful locales he had visited as a world traveller, none gave him the comfort that he felt when spending time in Delaware County. In fact, his love for the area was so strong that he directed his ashes to be spread across the lake . . . and they were, just a hundred yards or so from where he painted this scene. 

Emerson Burkhart – ‘Self-Portrait in Red Shirt'
1968, 20 x 24, oil on canvas, signed upper right. Excellent condition. 

It is well known that Burkhart painted hundreds of self-portraits. However, this is a larger version than many and one where he has done an excellent job of capturing the pensive side of his personality. This is an especially good looking painting and an excellent investment at this price.

Robert O. Chadeayne, 'Still Life of Conch Shell and Book'

13 x 15, oil on canvas, signed lower right. 


This is a very nice painting by Columbus artist, Robert Chadeayne, and a great value for a work such as this. Chadeayne’s paintings are receiving more interest today as they appear in both regional and national touring exhibitions including, “Regional Dialect” Paintings from the John and Susan Horseman Collection. This particular piece came from the collection of noted Columbus artist Chester Nicodemus. His personal label is affixed to both the canvas and stretcher verso. It is not known if Nicodemus was gifted this painting or if he purchased it from his good friend, Chadeayne.
