Archie Gunn Illustrations

By mwilcox


As far as I can tell this does look like original art by Archie Gunn (1863-1930) that would have been submitted for potential clients, but artwork like this still would require a physical examination to verify that. Archie Gunn was best known for his illustrations in the popular magazines of the day and Commercial artwork for things like calendars, post card and posters.

In many cases his illustrations would have been cut out of magazine covers and calendars and framed rather than thrown away, which is why pieces like this really need a physical examination to determine what we are dealing with. A comparable original piece by Archie Gunn would currently list in a Fine Arts Auction with a presale estimate in the $300.00- $500.00 range.
