Oil of Union Square SF by Lorain

greenspun.com : LUSENET : San Francisco Art : One Thread

I have an oil painting of Union Square in the 1920s that was purchased from a gallery in Saratoga, CA in the early 80s. Signed: Lorain. Does anyone have any info on the painter? A first name perhaps? Many thanks.

I have an oil painting of a Cable Car in San Francisco scene signed Lorain as well. Trying to find out who he is and if there is any real value to his work.......have you had any luck???

Sorry, I don't have an answer. I, too, have a Lorain oil painting, but no info about the artist. It's a San Francisco City Cable Car scene. My parents, now deceased, purchased it during a California vacation in the 70's. I would love to know more about the artis
