WPA Painting of Railroad Depot Industrial Area | Pat Curran
Here we have an WPA era watercolor painting of an industrial railroad depot, complete with a Co-op building and railway stop signal. WPA is oozing off this beast. Leave to the WPA visions to camp out at an old industrial park to get their inspiration and let the colors fly. And in the center of it all, a dude stands in a Brando white t-shirt and work pants. Doing work!
The unframed watercolor painting came out of a Twin Cities art estate. The artwork is likely from the late 1930s or early 40s. The industrial painting is signed "Pat Curran" in the lower right hand corner. I'm assuming the artist is from Minnesota or another Midwestern state. I haven't nailed down an exact match yet.
The unframed WPA painting and matting measure 16" tall by 22" wide. The exposed painting measures 14 1/4" tall by 17 1/8" wide. There are a few areas where the matting contains some discolorations. A solid piece ready for a new frame and matting, because this vibrant beauty deserves it. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
I ship FedEx to street addresses in the continental USA only (no PO Boxes). Free shipping on the rare WPA artwork.
A glimpse of the old American WPA frontier. So industrial, so every day, so nostalgic, and so good.
