Columbines Flowers Marjorie Grigonis Original Painting 20th c. American - framed
This beautiful small painting on canvas by Marjorie Grigonis is a close up view of columbines. The painting is signed on the front at the lower left Grigonis 91. She also wrote her last name twice on the back of the canvas. On the back, the following is written in ink on the wood stretcher – Columbines – 8 Walnut St NW Spring, 1991.
The 8” x 10” canvas is set (or “floated”) in a gold gilt slim wood frame --- with just over a 1/3” space between the edge of the canvas and the inner edge of the frame. The frame is 9 1/8” x 11 1/8” x 1 ½”.
The canvas and the frame are in good condition – with very minimal marks on the frame from age and handling.
