Default A Marc Lithos

I have 37 "lithos" by this artist, 10 larger and 27 smaller - none framed. Scenes range from famous sites in Europe to the northeastern United States including scenes around New York City. On the back of several of these "lithos" are the artist's swatches of colors with the colors identified in pencil that were used in the actual painting, along with the standard "Stehli Freres" etc etc designation.

I obtained these almost 35 years ago at an estate sale, along with several other artists' work, including 2 art "lithos" by A. Gasteiger, which I found later to be Anna Gasteiger.

There was a 3rd artist's work in with this treasure trove. However, these are not lithos but original art work, but some works appear to be "assignments" one would expect for an art student, including a sketch book of skeletal depictions of hands, arms, and portions of the human body. There were also finished pieces by this same artist - not published - but original works done in maybe charcoal on a thin blue paper of various sizes -- of birds, famous European statues, beautiful women, etc - absolutely beautiful!

I have an original watercolour of what looks like a Belgian house on a corner with a cathedral spire looming over the roof in the background,date on the back says 3 Nov 1941,label says Schwartz Freres,Endacrements Artistiques,10,Rue des Soeurs,Alexandrie(Egypt)-does this shed any light for anyone?I think it is fine,is it the cathedral painting referred to earlier or part of the series perhaps?Will revisit this forum to look for answers.

Default Prints by A Marc

I recently acquired two prints of watercolors by A Marc. The back was loose on the one and I opened it to find Series 1034 No 27 Penshurst (Kent), Antique Shop and Church. It is printed by Stehli Bros in Zurich. The other looks like a harbor scene possibly New York. These are most likely not matted/backed with acid free/museum quality boards so I will be having mine rematted (or may do it myself) and replaced in the frames I got them in. Image is approx 12 inches x 16 inches. Would love more info on this artist if anyone has found anything. The watercolors are intriguing. I bought them at a consignment store to put up in my classroom to expose my students to different art and artists and would love to be able to give them info on the artist. If anyone has any info/links please email me at lindcast@hotmail.com

Ours is No. 1072 - the bridge at Henley-on-Thames but we haven't been able to find out anything more either. Reading this thread of conversation has been really interesting but we are more intrigued than ever to find out more about this guy.

Default MARC prints

I recently acquired 2 prints, both of harbor scenes with Manhattan in the background. One is unsigned, the other is signed MARC in all caps and unlike his usual signature. Both prints are framed and the backs are sealed in brown craft paper. I'd rather not open the backs but may to see whether they are prints or originals. If they are prints, they are of fantastic quality!

I have a print of this too and am very interested to find out more of artist and scene. All I know is that it was bought in Reigate Surrey probably in 1030/40's

Default A. Marc water colour print

Recently inherited a A. Marc original print, Serie 162 No. 8 (Colmar (France) par A,Marc, Printed in Switzerland.

This print was purchased in Amsterdam by a family member in the early 1900's (probably around 1930). Size is 16 1/2 inches X 11 3/4 inches

On the back of the original framed print is a label that states,"Kunsthandel, W.v.d. Boom,
Overtoom 396, Amsterdam W.

Interested in seeing if additional information becomes available about A. Marc on this site as well as the value of this original print. Contact :tomvangink@gmail.com

I bought a print of A.Marc's series 1034 No. 27 of Penshurst (Kent U.K) its of an antique shop and church. It seems to have been cut down unfortunately but is still a lovely picture. An added bonus was that inside the frame, being used as a backing board, was a sepia photograph of a wedding-but no names! I bought this picture in a junk shop for 2 It's frame is damaged but very ornate.I know nothing of the artist yet, but I do know that print houses used to employ artists to go out and paint scenes for them. The pictures were sold and sometimes made into postcards.

Default Marc Watercolour

Mary, I have a watercolour that belonged to my parents (I'm 67) signed in the bottom righthand corner MARC . It's a street in the Elizabethian era I think. A street scene showing a clock tower arched between the 2 level buildings either side of the street. Could be in any European city. Have you been able to find out about your watercolour.Richard at rpadams@westnet.com.au

Default I met him in Dublin

Hello
I met the artist or an artist A.Marc in Dublin, Ireland, where I bought 3 beautiful pencil draw lithographs from him. He was selling them with other artists on Merrion Square. I don't remember the year but they are magnificent drawings. His work amazed me. I'm moving house right now so am organising the prints and paintings I've collected.

Question Houses of Parliament - London

I have owned an original watercolour by MARC of the Houses of Parliament in London from a rather muddy foreshore on the opposite bank of the Thames for about thirty years. Dimensions 16" x 12" colours (Dk & Lt Blue, Dk Brown and Lt Sepia and assorted colours from White through Grey to Black.) A most spectacular painting from an outstanding artist. I paid the princely sum of 1-00 for it - at an Auction (no buyer's premium back then either!). A small green & gold label on the reverse side states quote "The Wayfarer - Southport 24-34 Leyland Arcade. The watercolour has never been out of the small wooden backed and soft wood frame....unquote.

Can anyone please give me an idea of precisely (or roughly) when this was painted.?...

Default A. Marc

I have five prints by A.Marc. They were printed in Switzerland and they have a serie's number. The paintings are of buildings, mainly houses, and look like they were painted possibly in Switzerland. I, originally, thought that they were painted around 1950 but I am wondering, now, if it was around the 1930s, after reading some of the posts concerning this artist. Both of these decades had similar types of fashion in housing etc. The series numbers are 1036 no 17/ 1036 No 18/ 1035 No 5. I've just realised that two have carboard stuck to the back of the print, having been framed at some point of their life, therefore hiding the series numbers! I would be interested to hear if anyone has gleaned information about the value of the prints or maybe information about the artist. Thank you.
