being drawn by a team of oxen, a common sight on the Oregon Trail.  Measures 9 1/4" tall. Circa 1920s.

Slightly larger in size than my other "End of the Fence" painting by Dolph, this one measures 3 1/4" square and 4 3/4" overall. The frame has some chipping but it's
original to the piece. Marie Dorothy Dolph (1884 - 1979) painted until she was age 94, doing canvases of Wyoming ranches and landscapes, the Grand Tetons,
Yellowstone, Mount Hood, Oregon sights, deserts of California and wildlife including buffalo and wild horses. Dolph lived for a number of years outside of Casper
Wyoming near the famed Goose Egg Ranch with her husband Royal "Jay" Dolph. She would paint through the harsh Wyoming winters and travel to Yellowstone National
park to sell her creations to the tourists. As most of her works were miniatures they were perfect to pack into a visitor's suitcase and now her works are appreciated by
collectors around the globe.  Dolph is listed in Dowdy's, Who's Who, Davenports etc., and is only one of two listed Wyoming women artists.

Wonderful, rare Ruth Joy Hopkins etch of the front facade of the University of Wyoming. There is some damage, the right half of this piece is stained... please see the
close-up photographs. This could be minimized by careful matting of the actual inked area so that only a very small bit of stain would be seen on the lower right corner of
the edifice. Overall measures 5" x 4" Signed in pencil by the artist. Truly an iconic image. Gold colored metal frame.

Very large Indian Maiden and Warrior print original 1920                                                                                 SOLD THANKS

Exceptionally wonderful art deco era Indian Maiden and Brave print entitled "The Old Old Story" by master artist Bertram Basabe. This image was a lithograph done by
the American Art Works company in Cochsocton Ohio, probably 1910-1920.
LARGE 21" x 25" overall with a 1 1/2" frame.

The colors are amazingly vibrant and rich. There is no fading, toning or foxing. This print has been kept in a protected environment, away from damaging elements like
smoke and sunlight for decades. It came to me in a lot of some original works so I decided that eBay was the right venue to pass this along to someone who would
truelove love to own it. I've dealt in artwork for years and have seen hundreds of prints but this is the BEST I've ever seen by far, for condition. Absolutely remarkably
stunning colors, my pictures do not do it justice. There is one small scratch near the woman's shoulder but it's on the litho itself, not damaged after the fact.

The original frame is burled walnut. There's some shrinkage at the corners between the joints but no damage and only minor marks. Frame is dowel pegged, not nailed.
Original glass with some bubbles and stretch marks, new paper backer and hanging wire.

Betram Basabe was well known for numerous advertising images, his repertoire ran the gamut from Indian Maidens in canoes to garden nymphs and children. Many
featured reflective water, as does this one. Some of the pictures were taken in my sun-room and reflect the blinds in the sky and mountain area. Others are in my photo
studio area and show my lighting, sorry.
