Does anyone know how old this artwork is?
 
My mom has recently passed away, and i decided to take something of hers. This has been hanging on the wall for as long as i can remember (i'm 21)

I'm interested in how old, and who the artist really is.. its really hard to make out. De Larse?? Or maybe Oe..

I know nothing about that piece, but by chance, I did see a copy of it in an antique store on Saturday. I wanna guess it's from the 40's?

I saw your picture, and it reminded me of one I have. The artist is Ole Larsen. After doing a little bit of research I found this much for you.

"He painted mainly dogs and horses and most of his known work is from the 1940's and 1950's. Larsen painted dogs for a 1941 book showing each breed of dog and he did calendar art for the Gerlach Barklow Company of Joliet, Illinois. Some of his paintings are on serving trays."

Ole Larsen - Artist, Fine Art, Auction Records, Prices, Biography for Ole Larsen

Anyway, here is the picture I have. I will say I like your frame much better than mine.

Great Research, Army! Who would have thought she'd find the answer to her question, just like that!

Thank you so much! Whats so strange about this is my last name is larsen as well. Perhaps my mom bought it because it shared our last names.

Its on a wooden frame, which makes me wonder how much it is. Auctions on ebay with just the print itself is going for $10. (Not that i'd sell it, i'm just curious.)

Glad I could help you out. I really like this artists' work. My picture came from the farm my father bought from an older couple. It had a couple of older pictures left, this being one of them.

Omgosh, I have one too from this artist! Found it in a senior center thrift shop in Southern Nevada this past weekend. Reminded me of art from a favorite horse book from childhood!http:// http://s293.photobucket.com/...211_223800.jpg
