Description:

Philip Leslie Hale (American, 1865-1931)

Study for Riders on the Beach
Unsigned, identified in an inscription on the reverse.
Oil on pressed paperboard, 17 3/4 x 23 7/8 in. (45.5 x 60.8 cm), framed.
Condition: Surface imperfections and grime.

N.B. The finished work Riders on the Beach is dated 1890 and measures 48 x 77 inches.
Estimate $1,000-1,500

Framed dimensions are 20 1/2 x 26 1/2 inches.

There is a color copy of the finished painting, Riders on the Beach, affixed to the reverse, which was sold at Sothby's in 1996. The study shows the foreground white horse.

Accretion and area of paint loss to the u.r. corner. Small (1/8 inch diameter) loss to l.r. edge. Two small paint losses located in the neck of the horse. Because this is an oil sketch study, the surface feels unfinished and the brushwork is bold and somewhat rough.
