Two oil studies on wood portraits mounted on a board, unidentified, by Detroit artist Roy C. Gamble.

np nd (1930s?) Portraits are 9 x 6, board is 10.5 x 14, painted black. The portrait on the left shows a gentleman in a suit seated at a desk and holding a book, the other portrait shows the head only of a balding man with deep blue eyes, this one is signed by Gamble but the first one is not (the style of painting is the same). Paint has chipped off a little on the portraits, edges of wood are worn and soiling to surface, board has some chipping and missing a part of the upper right corner. Roy C. Gamble, 1887-1972, studied in Detroit, New York and Paris, had one-person exhibitions as well as participating in many group exhibitions, was a member of the Scarab Club. Collections of his works are at Princeton, University of Michigan, the Detroit Institute of Arts among others. He was best known for his portraits of prominent Michigan civic and social leaders. The portrait mounted on the right side of the board bears resemblance to former mayor John C. Lodge (1927-29).
