Israil Abramofsky Oil on Board
Carlene Daggett (10/18/2008)
I just purchased a oil on board painting sign I. Abramofsky. The painting is 12 X 16. The edges of the board are beveled. A friend of mine said he didn't think it was an Abramofsky. I notice on a website that there are a wide range of styles he painted in thru the years. I'm just interested in find out whether it could be a painting by Abramofsky. What could I look for or who I should contact. I have pics I could send. I absolutely love the painting and would like to find out more about it.

I am French and I have from my grandfather a painting signed I. Abramofsky: it is a strong and beautifull representation of the ocean and rocks, perhaps in Britain (FRANCE)? Its seems the Pointe du Raz. Scribe me in French if is possible, about the life and work of this artist.

I have an item (a Watercolor), from my parents estate, which can be described as almost identical to the 06/27/2001 posting of John Hancock, except there are no cars. It would be from the same time period, possibly a few years earlier based the story my Mother told. Maybe back into the mid to late 40's. I would add it is on a street corner with a building to the right and the silhouette of a man wearing a hat is scene through the windows of that building. The painting is approx. 18 1/2 inches wide x 15 1/2 inches tall. It has been in the Family for as long as I can remember and I was born in '53. The street lamp, flowers, horse cart, frumpy woman and child are all there, and yes, probably wet.





"abe" abramofsky
anne douglass belt (01/08/2006)
"Abe" was a very good friend of my family in Toledo. He vacationed with us at a place we had on Lake Erie, and I remember visiting him in his little apartment in downtown Toledo. I have several of his paintings including a self-portrait. One of the artists listed in the Toledo Independent Artist group is Dean Slager, not Dean Sloger. He was also a good friend of my father, Fred Douglass, and I have two of his watercolors. I have fond memories of Abe, along with some photographs of him with our family. He was a very kind sweet man. He also had some good stories about living in Paris along with some of the more famous painters of the early 20th century.





I Abramofsky,1918
Gene Mariani (12/18/2002)
I purchased an oil painting from a local antique shop, of what looks to be a Russian woman, dimensions approx. 30 inches tall by 24 inches wide, signed in the lower left corner in print " I Abramofsky. 1918". I would like to know if I may send a few photos to the proper person at your museum who could tell me just what I have. Woman is about 50ish, with definite light/dark shadowing on her serious face, as if by firelight. Has a black/very dark brown "scarf" draped over the back of her head down the sides of her face flowing over both shoulders, front and back. She has a black lace collar with what looks like a red lace trim on the top. From shoulders down painting faded from dark gray to black. Background around her head is medium light gray/yellow. I had the painting professionally cleaned and have what I think is a super tasteful grayish frame for it. Painting was owned by a couple who had a business and collected high quality antiques in the 1940 to 1980 time frame. When the husband died and the estate was broken up, this was the very last item that the widow sold (her children said that she valued/liked it that much). When I returned to the shop where I purchased it, the shop owner said that I purchased it one week prior to a Sotheby's representative visiting the antique shop who was very interested in seeing the painting. He said he was sorry he sold it to me and wanted to but it back! Please email me the correct mailing address and the point of contact at your museum that I can send some photos to. I am open to sending some photos to whoever is necessary for me to find out just what I have, so if there is another "expert" in Abramofsky paintings at another museum, please put me onto him/her. The Toledo Museum came up in an internet search, that's how I came across you. Would appreciate any help/ideas you might have that would help me ID this painting. Thanks, Gene Mariani. gmariani@peoplepc.com





I. Abramofsky
John Hancock (06/27/2001)
I have one that I believe was given to my parents when they wed in 1951. It's a street scene that I would believe is set in Europe in the 1930's or 40's, but I could be very wrong. There is a person selling flowers under a street lamp with a few cars, a horse and cart and a frumpy woman with her daughter (I know "frumpy" is not a beautiful way to describe, but it's the best I have at the moment). When in high school I used to lie on our living room couch and stare at it for a long time to try and determine whether or not it had just rained in the picture.

Lavoy middleton (05/18/2001)
I HAVE FOUR 8/12" BY 10' OILS ON BOARD. 3 OF THE FOUR ARE DONE IN THE IMPRESSIONIST STYLE. ALL ARE LANDSCAPES: ONE A RURAL MOUNTAIN SCENE, ONE WITH A HOUSE IN A WINTER SCENE WITH SNOW ON THE GROUND, ANOTHER WITH A FARM BLDGS WITH COLORFUL FLOWERS IN THE FOREGROUND ,THE LAST IS A WOODLAND SCENE WITH A STREAM IN THE FOREGROUND. I BOUGHT THESE THROUGH A SILENT AUCTION AT A CHURCH FLEA MARKET IN ALACHUA, FLORIDA. THE LADY WHO DONATED THEM SAID, "THEY CAME FROM HER FAMILY IN SOUTH CAROLINA". THEY HAD BEEN HER FAMILY FOR YEARS AND THEY HAD NEVER BEEN FRAMED. ALL THE COLORS ARE VERY VIVID BRIGHT DEEP COLORS. I HAVE SINCE FRAMED ALL FOUR AND THEY HANG IN MY STUDY.
