492: Oil Leyendecker Canvas Paintaing of Young Cowboy

Lot 0492 Details

Description
Oil on canvas painting of a young cowboy in his full rig. it was painted by the famous illustrator F.X. Leyandecker, probably in the 1920's. This is a large painting. About 36x18 inches. Though unsigned it was unmistakably done by Leyendecker. It has the characteristically whited-out background and strong brush strokes that he was famous for. The painting was never finished. many details are outlined or otherwise suggested but not finished. For instance, he was obviously holding a coil of rope in his left hand and was going to hold the loop in his right. This is a dramatic painting as it is. The details there are bold and striking. It needs to have some professional restoration done for it's preservation but even the bad spots add to it's character.
