HERES AN OUTSTANDING ORIGINAL VINTAGE ENAMEL-ON-COPPER PAINTING BY FLORIDA ARTIST STEFFY AUERBACH! Steffy Auerbach, who was active as an enamel artist and jeweler during the 1960s through at least the 1980s in both her native Vienna and later when she settled in Florida, created in this enamel painting a wonderful view approaching the midway at the Florida State Fair! Auerbach rendered the entire scene with lots of bold enamel colors, including green, yellow, orange, white, blue, purple, black, brown, and variations thereof, bringing a visual excitement to the experience of being a part of a state fair midway. Both children and adults are shown making their way to the game tents with the large Ferris Wheel in the background! This enamel painting has its original gold-leaf wooden frame and backing with overall measurements of approximately twelve and three quarter inches (12 ¾) in height by thirteen and one eighth inches in width.
The enamel painting itself measures approximately seven and one half inches (7 1/2) in height and eight inches (8) in width. Signed SA in the lower right corner within the enamel itself as well as an original artists ink stamp on the backside that reads STEFFY. In addition, there is an original artists paper label also on the backside that reads: STEFFY AUERBACH 800 Ben Franklin Drive, Sarasota, FL 33577. Condition: The enamel-on-painting is in excellent and clean condition absolutely beautiful! The gold-leaf wooden frame is in good and clean condition with either an intentionally distressed surface or there are numerous small scuffs markings (not certain which one).
The linen mount that surrounds the enamel painting has a few small markings and the backside paper backing has a few small markings and minor puncture holes but it is all intact!
