I am unable to find a bio on landscape oil artist H Wilson. Can you help?
I found this
I, too, found a painting signed "H. Wilson" - at a thrift store and I wondered if you could tell me anything about this artist?
What you have is furniture store art, in other words a factory painting. There are over 700 "art factories" in Hong Kong alone, not to mention the rest of Asia, Eastern Europe, and Mexico. A canvas is moved down a table or conveyor belt, one person paints trees, another paints mountains, another water, etc. A name for the artist is taken out of a book or just made-up. This will be fine for your next yard sale.
If the above is true, that would explain the difficulty finding biographical information on this artist.
There is plenty of info on Mark H. Wilson. the guy who gave the conveyour belt answer is incorrect
