The listing is for a Vintage Portrait Painting of Artist Marilyn Bendell by Diane Keske (Talmadge).

The artist Diane Keske Talmadge is a native of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, "she began drawing portraits as a child and over the years has gained recognition for her unique and sensitive style of oil portraiture. She has the ability to capture feeling and personality as well as an incredible likeness of her subject, displaying a softness unusual in her field. Her works have been exhibited extensively, winning numerous awards, and several one woman shows. Her paintings are now hanging permanently in several financial institutions, hospitals, country clubs, Government buildings and private collections throughout the country (Source: . "

She studied portraiture with Impressionist Artist Marilyn Bendell (September 19, 1921 โ€“ May 18, 2003) in Longboat Key, Florida. This painting is a portrait of Marilyn done in the 1970's by Diane.

Condition: The painting is unframed. The canvas is mounted on a "Stretch 'N' Frame" by Grumbacher New York. It is in overall good condition with wear/staining being consistent with storage/handling over the years and some foxing to white areas around edges. May need some cleaning. No rips or tears to the painting. Fraying around edge of canvas where it was cut/staple mounted to the stretcher.

Measurements: The canvas is 16 wide inches by 20 inches long (marked on stretcher as well).

Signed on the back of the frame: Marilyn Bendell by Diane Keske 1970's

I am unsure if the painting is oil or acrylic paint (may be a mixed combination of both).

**This painting was purchased with another portrait (see last picture) by the same artist; the other painting is not included and is available separately in another listing. **
