Jim Mickellson just keeps on selling

Posted in Uncategorized on September 23, 2010 by Richard Summers

Congratulations to IM of Plum Island, MA,
who recently purchased Jim Mickelson’s version of
the Rockport Motif #1. A truly important painting in
Jim’s development as a painter. We date this painting
to either the late 1950’s or early 60’s.
This painting depicts the motif before it became known
as Motif#1. There are elements of the painting that no long
exist, We sincerely hope that IM and her husband will enjoy
many years of living with this painting. It is truly representational
of Jim’s better work, and displays, in some ways, his developmental
period. Thanks, and best wishes to IM.

Edward Harvey scooped…

Evening Sketch at Magnolia Shore

SmartArtMarket wishes to congratulate RW and his wife from Schenectady who braved the threat of Hurricane Earl in order to see, and ultimately purchase two fine works by the nineteenth century artist, Edward Harvey. Having begun collecting Cape Ann artists, and Ed Harveys in particular, they passed through Newburyport on Friday morning on their way to Gloucester for the weekend. We had a delightful time talking about antique art, conservation methods and the somewhat sad story of Edward Harvey’s life. In the end they left with the two works of his that we had here in the gallery. We gave them some leads to follow to further their research. We also thank them and wish them many years of enjoyment and success in expanding their collection.
