This painting hangs on my tiny living room wall, ha ha - many of you have seen it. My 1926 apt. bldg. (pic 4) had this painting behind a 1970's makeshift office in our lobby. A few years ago they did a beautiful lobby paint and redo but the painting was set aside as they took down the 70's "office". I asked if I could have it and told them I would not keep or sell it because it belongs to the St. Regis. Maybe it was a good day because they said yes, take it.
Ho2cultcha asked me to give a little more information. I think this is from the late 20's or 30's. No signature. I think this was hung over our lobby fireplace. It is 38"x18" with this neat old fumed frame. Sometime thru the years when this bldg. went from swank to flophouse - and then back again to its original beautiful place on the beach, the painting sat behind. By the way and this is true. Our mail delivery used to be "so so". Many times I jumped up and looked over to see if USPS had thrown my pkg into the "office". And, always - there was this painting.
I guess I am the right one to have this for a little while?
