These are two genuine oil paintings hung up in the lobby of the firm where I work. It's likely the firm got them as gifts from one of their very wealthy trusts and estates clients. So, I'm pretty sure they are the genuine article (rather then ripoffs or prints).
Can anyone identify the artist(s)? I only asked a few people here (the receptionists plus a couple of others). They don't know anything about it.
I could have sworn I seen the latter painting in an art history book I once had when I was attending Baruch College. Not much help there in the memory department. I guess they're post-1960's. American or western European painter.
