This is a lovely and well done Antique California Plein Air Impressionist Seascape Oil Painting on Masonite, depicting Little Corona Del Mar Beach in Newport Beach, California. This work is a wonderful rendering, and captures the scene in an exquisite way. Hicks'56 in the lower left corner. I could not find any information on this artist, but perhaps you know more about them or their work?
The small houses on the hill overlooking the ocean still stand, and apart from the addition of some large trees in today's viewing of this outlook, the area looks nearly identical then and now. Approximately 30 1/2 x 36 1/2 inches including frame. Actual artwork is approximately 23 7/8 x 30 inches.An old yellowed label on the verso reads: Little Corona - Pelican Rock. Good condition, with some light scuffing, edge wear and gilding loss to the original period frame please see photos.
