Tony Fachet - "Baltimore and Ohio - Early Winter"
ARTIST: Tony Fachet
TYPE: Original Signed Oil on Canvas
CONDITION: Excellent, very slight corner fray - due to the age of the painting (see photo)
A wonderful composition of an early winter scene as the Baltimore & Ohio (B&O) GP40 locomotive hauls its load through the leaf-bare trees. This commissioned painting came from a private collection and has never been framed. Fachet's attention to detail draws the viewer in to appreciate the minute details of the subject.
