Edited: Thanks to Stacy at Junkism for giving me information on Harrison Fisher.
I ran across this watercolor painting in my junkin’ hunts this week. The stunning face of this woman drew me in for a closer look. I think the artist created an amazing face of a 1920’s woman. I love the shape, the expression, the detail.
Upon closer inspection I found the print to be signed.
From what I can tell it is a “Tomson Fisher” 1929. I have tried to research this artist, and I can not find anything. I would love to know more. Did Fisher paint any other paintings? Was this a one and only? Amateur painter? Doesn’t look like it to me. Is there a story behind this painting?
The frame isn’t in the best condition. It has a label on the back, “Grand Leader, Sixth and Wash Ave, St. Louis”. I am trying to decide if I want to take it out of the frame. I really think I am going to keep this one, at least for a while.
Have you heard of a Tomson Fisher, or am I reading the signature wrong? If you have any information, I would love to know.
