Antiques Fair 2013

Gertrude Abercrombie
"Countess Nerona", 1945

A sweet little miniature from the eccentric Abercrombie

Herman Menzel
"Shedd Aquarium"

Menzel is the deaf artist whose depiction of a Mexican pool hall was featured at the recent "They seek a City" exhibit at the Art Institute.

Lucie Hartrath, 1900

A nice outdoors figure by a Chicago Impressionist

Shirley M. Jackson

I found this artist a few years ago at the Antiques Fair -- and I still like her so much more than the more commercial landscape painters at these fairs.

This mischievous fellow is another find from the Tang Dynasty
