Yankee's at King George's Court, H. Soulen

I own a painting/Illustration by Henry Soulen. It was a gift from my husbands great aunt Helen -to me. The painting was printed within the The Ladies Home Journal, May 1935. (I just ordered a copy.) This is the first time it has been publicly viewed since that time. Which is why I have those awful white marks across it. Because it has been away from view since it's creation it's very hard to place the auction price. His work goes for between $5000 and $25,000. Thank you aunt Helen! It looks great in my guestroom!

Bless their hearts...the previous owners were heavy smokers. This painting was terribly dulled out. So I carefully cleaned after I was sure it was oils. Check this out....
