The images shown above are of an oil painting that I located in Bloomfield, NJ while browsing nearby in one of my favorite eateries Cuban Pete's.
The painting, containing a marvelous snow scene, is signed Nicholas 1948 (Kiental, ALP S W ).
It was brought to my attention that the artist Nicholas is none other than Henry H.

He used various medias such as gouache, oils and water. His many styles are impressionism before 1940, lumincas, luminism, realism, realists and naturalist to name a few. He lived and worked in California, Litehfield, Conn., New Mexico, Rockport, Mass. and Europe.
