This is an original work of art oil on canvas of a runaway stagecoach or wagon with bucking bronco at the center done by a student of William Gollings in the 20th Century. The piece is signed Gollings with his iconic “((A))” and below “Respectully by Monell”. The signature and ((A)) mark are nearly identical to Gollings signature and even in the same color and manner of Gollings lifetime works. Elling William (Bill) Gollings (American, 1878-1932) began painting in 1903 when he acquired some oil paints through the Montgomery Ward & Company catalog after being enthralled by the magazine illustrations by Frederic Remington. He was born in the rough and tumble mining camp of Pierce City, Idaho Territory in March of 1878. Like Frederic Remington, Gollings longed for a forgotten west, and went about authenticating himself to render it carefully and faithfully. This piece shows the same manner, style, pattern, subject matter and composition of an original Gollings even with a nearly identical Gollings signature but is thought to have been done by a student of Gollings, Monell. Not much is know known about Monell other than this amazing piece. Original Gollings works of this size and amazing scene regularly sell at live auction for in high excess of $150,000 to $612,000, with this being a much more affordable piece in the exact likeness of the originals. The piece is all hand painted and signed showing well preserved condition on a stretched canvas in oil with an original wood frame. The condition of this oil on canvas painting is good with no obvious signs of damage to the artwork the frame shows some wear to the edges and the left corner of the painting but otherwise in good overall condition. The measurements of this painting are 30 1/4" x 36 1/4" and the visible art measures 23 1/4" x 29 1/8".
