Here we have a rather unique, original cartoon illustration of a gentleman being lured to a garden gate. His dog looks to be lured to that spot also. And what’s with the object on the stick that’s hanging over the door? The man seems to recognize it…
This piece was created using pen/ink and watercolor, and is signed K. JOHN, but it is not dated on the front, and research shows no information on the artist. The artist could be of German or Austrian lineage and the artwork may have been created around the 1920s-40s , due to the style of cartoon and dress of the gentleman.
This picture looks to be in its original frame, and measures 15″ x 17″ overall. The frame is a simple style, painted in yellow with a green stripe. The paint is chipped in spots, but the frame is very sturdy and secure. The colors in the painting are still vivid and there looks to be no water stains or blemishes, foxing, folds, or wrinkles in the paper. The glass, however, looks like it could use a good cleaning on the inside.
Overall, this quirky painting is in fine form, inside a plain and solid frame! 15885jas
