This exquisite piece is an original oil on canvas from the year 1906, bearing the signature "A.R. Husted-Long" on its lower right corner along with the date. The artwork is titled "Ideal Hat", as denoted by an exhibition tag from the New York Artist Club on the back of the canvas. Intriguingly, the tag indicates that the piece was not for sale at the time of the exhibition, adding a layer of history and exclusivity to its provenance. It's evident that the painting has lived a storied life, with several holes and tears in the canvas that testify to its age and the need for careful restoration. The current condition, though marked by time, lends a hauntingly beautiful character to the piece that some may prefer to preserve. However, the opportunity for restoration is available, should the new owner choose to bring the painting back to its former glory. This lot represents not just a piece of art, but a slice of history, and awaits a discerning collector who values both beauty and the tales that come with time.It measures 26.5 by 21.5 inches.
