Henry Pancher (1910 - 1994) was a modern American Folk Art painter. While living in Carmel, California, he was showing art at the Bill W Dodge Art Gallery.
At the time, Bill was seeing Joan Fontaine, so Henry gifted one of his paintings to the couple. The note from Pancher is attached on the back along with the title, 'Italian Countryside'. Later, after Henry's passing, Bill added the obituary. These attachments establish provenance.
Bill W Dodge is offering a 2nd painting by H Pancher for sale. There aren't any notes on the back of this piece of a family having their portrait taken.
Both paintings are 12" x 16". A frame is included. The frames have some wear and tear markings as expected for pieces of this age. The frames are not factored into the value of the painting.
Each painting is $700. Click here to purchase.
