In Reply to: Re: F. H. McKay b.1880 Impressionist Painter by Betty Lane of 2844

Hi Betty,
F. H. McKay worked in the first half of the 20th century in and around the New England area. His paintings are primarily of the quaint houses, farms, and towns typical of that area. His paintings can be found ranging in size from a small 8x10 on board to larger canvas pieces. Also, prints of his oil paintings were sometimes made. He sold quite frequently to tourists visiting the area who wanted to take home a reminder of their vacation. Prices for his paintings range from the low hundreds up to 2 or 3 thousand for a large oil on canvas in an original frame. His pieces turn up now and agin at some of the established east coast auction houses and a good deal can be found on eBay from time to time. Sadly, not much biographical information has turned up on him yet. I hope this has been helpful. Enjoy your painting.
Best regards, Bill
