Oil Painting 5x8 framed by Duncan Vail Co with frame = 8X11 wonderful painting, 1938, Roman Aqueducts
My grandmother knew this artist and purchased it from the artist around 1945 - label on back states it was framed by Duncan Vail CO. I believe my grandmother purchased the painting during a trip to Minneapolis. This painting was hung in my grandmothers home in Paris France, then move with me to Zweibruecken Germany and is now located at the Mid-South Art Gallery, Bartlett, TN
