This would be a great gift for the artist or classic art aficionado.

Amazing vintage collection of 15 classic paintings used in the Instructor Picture Study Series selected and arranged by Mary C. Owen and published by the F.A. Owen Publishing Company from Dansville, NY.

This is "Great Pictures Children Will Enjoy" Portfolio 8. Excellent vintage condition Set of 15 portfolios which include the large, matted pictures intended for the teachers use. Years ago these full color reproductions of famous paintings were used for school study and to teach art appreciation. This particular set is recommended for 7th and 8th graders.

Each picture is mounted on a heavy mat size 9-3/4” x 12-3/4” and is enclosed in a folder of heavy art paper 10”w x 13”L. On the inner pages of the folder are printed the story of the picture, story of the artist, questions to ask pupils, suggestions to the teacher...These lessons are provided by different art instructors and experts and date from 1924-1936.

All prints, folders and portfolios are free of stains and tears.

Also included is the outside case in orange with two metal snaps. It measures 13" x 10.5" x 5/8" and is in excellent condition.

The following portfolios are included:
#4 Dignity and Impudence by Sir Edwin Landseer
#10 The Lookout - "All's Well" by Winslow Homer
#28 Road Through the Trees by Jean Baptiste Camille Corot
#36 The Grand Canal, Venice by J.M.W. Turner
#49 Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci
#51 Portrait of the Artist by Rembrandt
#53 Children of the Shell by Bartolome Esteban Murillo
#54 Dance of the Nymphs by Jean Baptiste Camille Corot
#64 Spring by Jean Baptiste Camille Corot
#73 Erasmus by Hans Holbein
#80 Syndics of the Cloth Guild by Rembrandt
#82 Madonna of the Harpies by Andrea del Sarto
#95 A Distinguished Member of the Humane Society by Sir Edwin Landseer
#98 Shoeing the Bay Mare by Sir Edwin Landseer
#99 The Fighting Temeraire by J.M.W. Turner

These are hard to find in a complete group and with the case included. You can regularly find individual portfolios listed for $20, or sometimes two at a time for $40 - $50. Here you get all 15 plus the case in excellent condition for an average of only $2 each!

This would make an excellent holiday gift for the collector and art appreciator. They are often mounted and framed individually, and look great when done right. These alone you could easily sell for $10-15 each mounted in a basic frame.

Email, call or text. Cash only, thanks.
