Price: $950.00
Heres a rare opportunity to buy an original Bob Byerly oil painting for under $1,000 ! Most of Bob's Art Prints sell for $1,300 or more. That is for a PRINT!!! This is an original one of a kind oil painting guaranteed from the hand of the master painter Bob Byerley. While not yet on a par with Kansas Citys other great artist Thomas Hart Benton I assure you he is headed there. This is a great chance to own a original piece of art by an American master for an unheard of price. Bob Byerley is a master of Trompe l'oeil. Trompe l'oeil, means simply ''to deceive the eye''. Bob has been a master of this for years and most of his paintings have parts you swear are real or just about to move. They are so realistic they deceive the eye. This piece is titled ''F. H. with Grapes'' not sure who F H was but it was not his first wife who I met many times. I'm sure there is a bit more to the two grapes hanging tantalizingly down and the buxom woman's cleavage. Maybe more there than we will ever know. At any rate this is a very early painting by Bob and the grapes seem to pop off the canvas at you. I don't think he varnished this piece and a nice varnish job would make them pop out even more. I would guess this painting is from the middle 1970's maybe even early 70s. Certainly a great investment to be had here with tremendous upward potential in value. This piece was previously owned by Helen Nelson who's family founded ''The Kansas City Star'' and the Nelson - Atkins museum of art in Kansas City. Great bit of added provenance for this fine painting. Great condition no visible flaws frame is a tad outdated and I'm sure the new owner would be proud to choose a fine one for this great prize. Measures a nice 8'' by 9'' in its frame which could use updating or 4 x 5 normally. Absolutely guaranteed a true oil painting by Bob Byerley.
