Max Karp (American, 1916 - 1999) was a self taught artist whom is known to have been a pioneer in the enamel paint on copper plate medium. The lovely painting depicts a landscape with birch trees and two figures resting in the grass depicted in conversation.
There is a town with architecture depicted in the distant background and can be seen just above the figures on the right side of the plate.
The work has a note on verso denoting "This is an original enamel on copper. / Metarco Galleries"
The copper plate has been presented in a carved and parcel gilt finished, antiqued wood frame.
Sight: 7 1/2"H x 9 3/8"W
Frame: 14 1/2"H x 16 1/8"W
Condition: The plate which bows outward is loose in the frame. The linen interior lining of the frame is showing signs of dust and the frame itself which has splits and wear to the gilt finish is in good form with the wear lending it an aged appearance.
