1948 Raymond J. Wendell Oil on Canvas, "I Can't Take It Anymore"

$1,500

About

Raymond J Wendell (American, 1917 - ?) was a prolific artist, adept at portraits, commercial art, surrealism and figure studies, in oils and watercolors. Wendell served in the U.S. Navy in the Pacific during WWII, then attended Yale Art School post-war, possibly on the GI Bill. One of his surreal oils appeared in Life magazine in 1948, but his later history is obscure. A very talented artist that just disappeared off the face of the earth some time 1949 or 1950 no work is found after that year. His full larger surrealist pieces have sold for over $5000.00 about five years ago. His heavy surrealist work is akin to Dali, Ernst and Chirico. He has and is becoming more collectable. This portrait is beautifully executed. The piece also has a very mesmerizing look as the other pieces possess in our collection. His flare for color and the uncanny way he captures the subjects eyes, is also mesmerizing. Its almost you can really feel what the persons soul is all about. The piece is presented in a slightly off-white wooden frame that would have been indicative of the late 1940s or early 1950s. The frame draws your attention to the piece. Please see our other pieces of his work. We think you will find the rest of the family very interesting. Size of the actual art is: 19.25 x 15.5. Framed size complete is below in the end listing.
