William Jurian Kaula (American, 1871-1953)

Sunset in Normandy
Signed "WILLIAM J. KAULA" l.l., identified on an unattributed exhibition label affixed to the reverse.
Oil on academy board, 10 x 12 7/8 in. (25.5 x 32.7 cm), framed.
Condition: Scattered small paint losses, surface grime.
Estimate $600-800

The losses are tiny (1/8 in or smaller) losses, primarily to the tops of impasto in the green pigments in the lower right quadrant. The work might benefit from cleaning.

The exhibition label appears to be in the artist's hand and gives his address as 311 Fenway Studios, Boston. The frame bears a label from Caverly's, Boston, on the back. The frame dimensions are 15 7/8 x 18 5/8 in.
