Sale 1702 Lot 102

Charles Hernandez
(American, 19th Century)

"Sunset Over the Valley", 1877

oil on canvas
signed and dated lower right. Framed.
12-1/4" x 20-1/4"

Provenance: Naomi Damonte Marshall/Downtown Gallery, New Orleans, Louisiana.

Notes: Little is known about Charles Hernandez, other than he was active in New York City in the third quarter of the 19th century and was a member of the National Academy of Design, exhibiting with that institution in 1876, 1877, and 1880. Trow's New York City Directory of 1877 lists him as residing at 1155 Broadway. Since a number of artists were listed at this same address, it is possible it was a working gallery, or studio space. Interestingly, the location was to become the site of the world's first Kinetoscope (early motion picture) theater in 1894.

Estimate $ 3,000-5,000
