Vintage Oli Painting on Board Featuring a Winter Woodland Scene with Deer

$78.00

Charming vintage oil painting on Masonite featuring a winter woodland scene snow and a deer in a clearing.  Signed “Luba” (Mrs. Luba Weisner)–see history below.  The painting is in a white and gold gesso-on-wood frame measuring 11 5/8″ x 9 5/8″ overall.  The painting measures 9 1/8″ x 7 1/8″.  Very good preowned vintage condition with age-appropriate wear (we estimate the painting dates from the 1960s to 1970s).  The back shows some water stains, but they haven’t bled through onto the artwork.

Product Information

HISTORY (from online obituary): Luba Alexandrovnov Moschajev Wiessner, Blue Ridge, Georgia, artist passed away on September 7, 2015. She was born September 30, 1926, in Odessa, Ukraine, on the Black Sea and had lived in Blue Ridge since the 1970’s.  She was fond of saying that the name her mother gave her was the most beautiful word in the Russian language, for “Luba” means “love,” and she loved beauty and saw something beautiful in every person. Words are not adequate to describe the spirit of this fiercely independent, generous, fun-loving woman who endured so much in her lifetime.  Her paintings of mountains, lakes, the sea, wildlife, and the Russian landscapes she left so long ago attest to her determination to create what was beautiful in a world where she had seen first hand so much hatred and suffering.  At the age of 16, Luba fled from Odessa when the city had fallen to the Germans and Romanians during World War II. She landed in Germany and served as a rescue nurse in Koblenz, which was bombed repeatedly during the war. While bringing others to safety, she was seriously injured by an exploding bomb. Afraid that she might be paralyzed, she started concentrating on painting, thinking she could earn a livelihood from painting if she never walked again. Luba painted her whole life until her hands were no longer able to hold a brush. Her oil paintings grace the homes of many private homes and are in 40 states and 15 foreign countries. She has won many accolades in art shows.

    Wonderful experience, meticulous packaging!

    I purchased two items from this shop. They arrived surprisingly quickly, and it was evident that extreme care was taken to ensure they arrived safely. I greatly appreciate the attention and extra care when packaging up the items. How sad it would be to purchase an antique that has survived multiple generations, only to be destroyed by USPS! Thank you so much for a wonderful shopping experience!
