N190 Large matted print of Chinese performers on Midway

$275.00

One of a series of paintings and photographs that were matted and sold at or just after the fair. Early this year we sold another painting that was signed on the mat, as well. The artists were well known in the fair era. We do not know how the series was sold, nor what prompted the artists in some cases to go back and provide an original signature—but they are rare if not unique. The original mat shows some corner deterioration and the original description has been placed at the top above the artwork in 1893 (not glued). The other print in the sale is by Ditzler. If you would like information on others in this series (which are signed) please let us know. The matted print is roughly 16x20
