Skłaniam się, że jest to praca Iwana Trusza, lecz tchu nie zapiera. Wycena adekwatna.
PS. Dom aukcyjny Arnold nie pakuje i nie wysyła sam prac a zatem koszta pakowania i transporu przez obcą firmę będą niewspółmiernie wysokie – każdy przecież musi zarobić.
Lot 505. Iwan Trusz, l.u.sig. Wysocko 1869 – 1941 Lwiw, ‘Abend über dem Jordan’, betitelt, Öl/Ktn., 50 x 70 cm, Kratzspur. Opening 1,200 euro. Arnold. 11/21/20
Od czytelnika z Ukrainy nadszeł taki list (drukuję z przyjemnością i podziękowaniem) nt tej pracy Iwana Trusza, jak również poprzednio pokazywanego ‘Pejzażu znad Dniestru’ sprzedawanego w Bonhams (https://polishartcorner.com/2020/10/29/iwan-trusz-1869-1941-7/):
Here is some info I came across which may interest you:
About the Evening over the Iordan river. An oil on cardboard version of the same landscape exists in a Ukrainian private collection, pfa. Signed and named in the low right corner in Ukrainian. The Arnold’s oil on canvas is signed in Latin and evidently named in Polish. It is quite possible that both variants are done by Trusz, but a vice versa variant is possible as well. It is not uncommon for Trusz both to make several versions or author’s copies of the same painting (pls see below if this is the case) and also to have the name of the picture signed in the corner along with the signature (there are samples from his Italian pictures), but the Arnold’s one has the name written in different color than the signature and so far I failed to find another example of such signing.
As for the Bonham’s Dnieper landscape, another version of this painting was exhibited in Kyiv 2 years ago https://nuart.com.ua/en/paintings/dnepr/ (at the gallery of highly respected Kyiv collector), this is evidently different from both version you refer to. I can not tell if all three are authors’ copies or not, but personally the one in Kyiv looks most genuine to me, the Bonham’s one looks more like an early version and the one of Agra looks doubtful, but I may be mistaken.
Sorry for bothering , just wanted to share the information.
