Edgar Alwin Payne Oil Painting Featured in North American Auction Company’s Best in the West EventOct 09, 2021 11:00 EDT
An oil painting by American artist Edgar Alwin Payne leads this Best in the West auction, hosted by North American Auction Company. Payne was mostly a self-taught artist, apart from his brief time at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1907. He was perceived as one of the first plein-air landscape painters of the early 1900s and widely recognized for his Western landscapes. Available in the auction is an Edgar Alwin Payne oil painting titled In the Misty Alps. This piece features a scenic Swiss Alps view with Payne’s signature in the lower left corner. The framed depiction of mountainous peaks measures over 18 inches high and 21 inches wide.
Also offered is a rare Smith & Wesson .38-40 Frontier revolver with a 6.5-inch barrel. Smith & Wesson only manufactured 276 of these revolvers between 1900 and 1910, although the frames were made prior to 1899. Each one bears a serial number from 1 to 276. A popular caliber in the Southwest and Mexico at the time, this gun has matching serial numbers on the barrel, frame, and cylinder.
