Whoever said there isn’t anything good on ebay anymore wasn’t watching today. A small painting by Edward Mitchell Bannister went well above the $85 starting bid and fetched $2221.89. The least expensive auction record I can locate for Bannister is $900, however there is no accompanying photo. Most of his works are in the five digit category. The ebay offering seems to be a sketch, but has a certain charm none-the-less.
Bannister (1828 –1901) was an African American painter whose tonalism and predominantly pastoral subject matter owed much to his admiration for Millet and the French Barbizon School.
