An exceedingly scarce original oil on canvas by noted Illinois early calendar artist Frank Robert Harper (1876-1948). Harper had a long and successful career in American Illustration.

He was particularily adept at portraying exotic-themed Anglo Saxon-ized Indian Maidens and his rare paintings of beautiful women are some of the most poignant in terms of mood and technique from the early art nouveau influenced pre art deco years of glamour art.

This is nicely framed and has been oversprayed with some type of varnish or shellac at some point and is priced accordingly.
