Description

Description: This charming watercolor by American artist Charles Oglesby Longabaugh, aptly titled “Patience”,  features a saddled donkey docilely waiting outside a Mexican bar. One of the saloon-style doors has a partially visible sign that we assume reads “Cerveza XX Dos Equis”. The donkey loyally stands outside in the late afternoon sun as his owner, perhaps one of the murky patrons visible in the shade of the bar, enjoys a brief respite.

The watercolor is initialed and dated by Longabaugh at the bottom right and is titled and signed in graphite on the mat. Sight size: 5 1/4″ x 6 1/8″. Matted to: 14″ x 11″. Item #FA00393

Charles Oglesby Longabaugh (1885-1944) was born in Grayslake, Illinois and studied at Wheaton College and the Art Institute of Chicago. He travelled extensively, spending a considerable amount of time in Mexico and the American Southwest. His watercolors became wildly popular and were said to be sold “wet off the canvas,” such was the demand for his art.

Condition:  Mat is lightly toned and glued to the backboard. Watercolor is in very good condition.
