"Hot Pretzels" by Saul Weinstock
(Active first half 20th Century)
Oil on board, 28 x 24 inches (board), 31 x 27 inches (frame).
This particular painting is very reminiscent of the "Ash Can School" of painting which continued to influence much of the art produced in the United States during the 1930's through the 1940's (many times referred to as "New Deal," or "WPA" art).
Weinstock exhibited a watercolor painting titled "Variations on a Still Life" at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1952. His address at the time was: 31 Saint
Marks Place, New York City.
