Excellent! Print is in what looks to be the original vintage frame and double matting. It is in excellent vintage condition, showing minor handling marks. Double matting color is even, with no evidence of sun-fading. Clear glass is intact, with no noticed chips or cracks. Back covering is professionally-applied brown framing paper, intact, complete with original frame shop sticker and hanger wire.
Clancy Cherry (1921 - 2009)
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Born January 27, 1921 in Breckenridge, Texas as Margie Colleen Clancy, she drew and painted her entire life and studied art at the University of Texas in Austin for two years. However, she didn’t seriously pursue art professionally until she was 50 years old. Her early works were signed with the last name of her first husband, Kralicek.
Clancy Cherry later received her Fine Arts degree from the University of Texas, Austin. She taught portrait/figure painting in Berkley, California for several years before returning to Texas with her husband. Ms. Cherry had traveled extensively on safaris to photograph in the wild to use in her work. Most of the comments on her wildlife paintings at her art shows was that "I make the animal come alive through their eyes".
Clancy Cherry lived until the age of 88!
NORMAL WEAR: Most of my items are vintage or antique--many are over 100 years old! With this in mind, you will undoubtedly find minor signs of normal wear and/or patina on most every item. When I find exceptional wear, manufacturer's defects, damage and/or repairs, they will ALWAYS be noted in the description. Minor usage marks will not be remarkable.
PHOTOS: Please review all high-resolution photographs--at 100% magnification, as they are an integral part of this description! Be aware that any photo can make item look smaller, or larger, than actual. Photos are not representative of actual size. Hi-res photos will always tend to show and exaggerate scratches and other minor defects. Please keep this in mind: defects seen at 100% resolution may not be visible with the naked eye. If you have questions about photos or any part of this auction, please ask, BEFORE bidding!
