Unearthed in an attic

Another painting of Jim’s was recently found along with two others in an attic during an estate cleanout. It depicts the inner harbor in Rockport with the original Motif #1 in the center background.
It is 18×24, oil on board, signed and although undated, we estimate it to have been painted in the late 50’s or early 60’s when Jim had his gallery there, and seems to have developed a relationship with the family. Three pieces were found in the estate, one was dated 1961.
