Antique Victorian Yard Long Framed Roses Print Newton A Wells Paul de Longpre

Antique Victorian Yard Long Framed Roses Print Signed Newton A Wells - Very Much in the Style of Paul de Longpre. Original 1890 era lithograph measures framed 13 1/2" x 39 1/2"; the art itself is 12" x 38". The wood frame has been finished with a light covering of white gesso type material, the glass is original old and wavy type. Magnificent art depicting various roses flowers. Fine clean solid complete condition with no damage - the frame material is a bit flaking and chalky, the print has some normal age toning but no stains. The backing still retains the original pine backing boards! A true Victorian classic yard long roses print, an exact match for the Paul de Longpre types. Newton Alonzo Wells is a well known listed artist himself.

    Flora A. Ellis, 1879, Schenectady, N.Y. Child, Reginald Ellis, b. Jan. 8,
    1881. Address, 803 W. Oregon St., Urbana.


    The 1906 book lists his mother's birthdate as March, 1824.
    His son also attended the university. 

    Some adjustments are in order: Alonzo was born in Oct. 1823 in Bridport,
    Vermont and the family moved the next year, 1824, to Brandon, NY 
    (very near Malone).  Alonzo was a circuit Methodist minister and preached 
    in Northern NY for over 50 years.  His wife, Newton's mother, Julia Angeline Cargin, 
    was b. Mar. 9, 1824 in Constable, NY and died April 26, 1886 in Constable, NY.  
    Newton died in Algeria on Jan. 10, 1923, and, we assume, that he was buried 
    there.  I don't know much about Newton's wife, Flora, but that they were 
    married in Schenectady, NY, suggesting that she was from there.  Reginald 
    died in 1960 and nothing else is known. Newton had 5 siblings, Angie, 
    Addie, Mary, Albert, and Wilber.        

    The family has a magazine-like picture, drawn by Newton, of a child with
    light-brown wavy hair, in which he used Reginald as his subject. After my 
    grandfather died, my family donated a rather large painting of Newton's 
    to Syracuse University  The painting, titled, "The housewife," depicted a 
    woman working (kneading bread) in her kitchen.  The painting was done, 
    we believe, in approximately 1888 and the subject was Newton's sister, 
    Angie (my great-grandmother).  The frame, very ornate, was donated as 
    well and was hand-carved by Newton.   

    Newton's father, Alonzo, died on 7/26/1905 in North Lawrence, NY 
    and was buried in the Cargin Cemetery, Constable,NY.
