Aug 27, 2012, Judith, Thank you for your response.  They are approximately 12”x12” in size.  They could have been displayed with sun exposure but I’m not sure.  I have attached pictures of the prints.  Sorry if they are not too good as I took them on my phone.  Without you physically viewing the prints, do have any idea if these would be worth something?   Do you feel I should pursue having them appraised?  Just wondering, what is a rough appraisal estimate for colored prints. Thank you for your assistance, Shari !

RESPONSE

Shari, They have faded....and no it is not worth having them appraised. I have no idea what they are worth but I rarely see them on eBay or any such website. Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell



***********************************************


Aug 22, 2012, Hi Judy,   Our organization have come across two of August Holland’s prints (I’m assuming because they are behind glass).  I believe one is called “Sernade” with a boy serenading a girl sitting on a rock in the woods.  The other is a boy and girl sitting in the woods by a stream.  I would need to take them out of the frames to see the actual title.  I do see August Holland signature in the print.  There Serenade I can see in the bottom left corner B.P. Co. Inc.  These are not  colored, they appear to have a bluish, grayish tone as they may have been done in lead pencil.  I have did some research on the internet with no results except finding a colored picture of Serenade.  I am hoping you may give me some direction or idea of what these prints maybe.   Thank you for any help you may provide.   Shari A. Sheron !

RESPONSE

Shari, I do apologize for the late response to your email. I was getting my ducks in order! There were four pictures in the series. I believe they were done by Bernard Publishing in New York City.  The titles were "Serenade", "Together", "Thoughts", and "Solitude". They were printed in several sizes back in the 70's. I can't explain why yours look like they were done in pencil unless for some reason you have the sketches.  The colors were mostly greens with some yellow. Were yours in the sun and have faded? I hope this answers your questions. I still have some of each of the others. Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell



***********************************************


August 17, 2012, ~Dear Judith Holland-Lindell:   Back on June 18, 2011 I wrote a poem to honor August Holland, entitled " The Persona of the Sea" and you placed this in his museum.  I was gratefully pleased to compose this piece which showed how much he loved all things of earth. Last evening, I found his name coming to my mind often, so perhaps it is because the anniversary of his death is soon to happen on August 28th.? So today was born, "The Universe Which I May Share"  I wish to offer this as a tribute to August, which proves him to be very much alive in love and thought. This poem is like giving a living memorial rose to someone you have never met. So, this too is attached as the second poem for you and any of his remaining family to share .                                                                                                                                                                                        Because for some reason, even with the passing of an entire year and a month, the beauty of His Soul ... which certainly came through his paintings...must choose to be remembered.             Poeticlee yours, Liathain O'Maoldomhnaigh, a soon to be 77 year old      Granny  devoted to sharing "Life" on paper! !

Aug 16, 2012, I have come into the possession of what I'm sure is one of the prints on canvas of which you write.  (No brush strokes, lower left signature in printed blue. )  However it is a snowscape--creek or small river bordered by tall pines.  The quality of the light is sublime, something I think I notice in many of Mr. Holland's works.  Measures 24 h x 48 wide, canvas stapled to board, no paper backing, no distributor markings of any kind.  Do you have any info on this work?  Thank you.  Andrea !

RESPONSE

Andrea, You do have a print of "White Mantle". It was printed by Goes Lithographing in Chicago. The original was sold to someone out  in the northwest. It is no particular place- just a snow scene accumulated from many photographs. It could be anywhere there is a creek , snow and this type of tree. Best regards,  Judith Holland-Lindell

Aug 6, 2012, 
Met August years prior did painting of people I met with siam with tiger head front of paintings their heads blended in. Second one more blue in background tiger face me and made hidden background. He did others similar of those I know in siam. Need to look for painting of my mom holding a baby with tiger head siam. I need to know where August Holland lived and worked in the globe because I have 2 doubles global paintings our people Cram tribesman because I'm free to tell you I lost my painting to those that killed us laughing with a general. 10000 lost kids thus far mine and moms. I remember the burning days of homes of doubles pilots siam. Simply blessing you keep doubles blessing me miss my prints will contact soon. Barbara cram

RESPONSE

I do not know of these paintings. August lived in Mendota, IL and also worked there.  Sincerely, Judith Holland-Lindell

Jul 14, 2012, Hello, My name is David Breitbach. Just recently I was cleaning through my room and I came across two dinosaur lithographs, I think they are reprints, that look to be signed by August Holland. I have been searching online to find more information about these two pictures but I haven't found anything. One is named Dinosaur I while the other is named Dinosaur II. I'm curious to know if they were made by him. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, David Breitbach !


RESPONSE

David, August did some dinosaur pictures for Giant Photos in Rockford, Illinois in the 70's. Giant Photos was a company that distributed flyers to schools with inexpensive prints that students could afford. If yours are signed by August ; then I would assume they were his. He did many subjects besides marines while he was trying to become known. Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell



***********************************************


Jul 11, 2012, How would i go about finding out the value of a painting by August Holland ASMA? Alisha Bassindale !


RESPONSE

You would have to have it appraised by a reputable appraiser namely an art gallery that does appraising and knows August's work. If you live in the Midwest it would be the Kavanaugh Gallery in West DesMoines, Iowa. They may want to see the painting in person and there will definitely be a charge for the appraisal. Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell



***********************************************


Jul 7, 2012, Hello, I was out with my 10 year old daughter and we stopped and elderly woman's yard sale.  My daughter fell in love with this painting of a Zebra sipping water and the Zebras reflection...it is signed August Holland.  I looked it up on the internet but could not find it.  Could you possibly tell me if this is one of Augusts paintings or not.  Thank you, Donna Irvin !


RESPONSE

It certainly is. He did a series of African animals for a publisher in New York in 1970. I am fairly sure that what you saw was a print. best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell



***********************************************


Jul 4, 2012, Have a painting my grandma bought from August. I guess she knew him. It's called "Lightning" it's an original I was wondering of there was any info on it. Did you want a picture? Jonathan Kuster !


RESPONSE

Jonathan, What do you have in mind? Is there a ship in it and what is the size? Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell



***********************************************


Jul 3, 2012, Hi Judith, My name is Melissa I found a painting with August hollands signature. I was just wanting to confirm that it is actually his. I have enclosed an image. Best regards, Melissa Melissa V. Rowat !


RESPONSE

Melissa, This painting is in print; so you most likely have a print. The original was sold in 2003 or 2004 to someone out west. It certainly is one of August's. He did more landscapes than seascapes at the time.  It was actually painted in the late 60's. Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell



***********************************************


Jun 30, 2012. I have the oil painting not print can you please get back to me. Want to sell. John Rocco !


RESPONSE

I am sorry to tell you that you have a print on canvas. I still own the original. It hangs in my dining room.  At the time it was printed there was a process for transferring prints to canvas that made them look like the real thing. It is very hard to tell the difference. Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell



***********************************************


Jun 22, 2012. I have a painting that may be an original how do I proceed? tom nagel !


RESPONSE

Find a reputable gallery that also appraises and have it appraised. Is it an August Holland? If so, you could send me a picture and I may be able to tell you whether it is an original or not. However, I could not give you a value. Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell



***********************************************


Jun 17, 2012, Dear Judy, I have a painting of August Holland, It call from Sea to Shining Sea that I won in a Contest 1999. I want to know what is worth today. I don't want to sell it, just to see if it have any Prize on it. Thank you. Jennie !


RESPONSE

Jennie, Thousands of people received a print of that painting as you did. It was distributed all over the world. I have no idea what the value is but you might check with eBay to see what it is selling for. Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell



***********************************************


May 28, 2012, I have an August Holland print of From Sea to Shining Sea.  What is the going price for it now.  I've had it since the 1990's and really can't recall what I paid for it. Dena !


RESPONSE

Dena, You may have received it free because the company that printed it offered it free. Then they wanted you to buy the frame from them.  It was distributed all over the world.  I would check eBay to find the going price for it. This all happened around 1996. Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell



***********************************************


May 22, 2012, i have an tiki fire god oil painting great condition with signature. and i"m trying to find out how much its worth in value. Michael Stephens !


RESPONSE


Michael, I am sorry I can't give you a value for it as I am not an appraiser. What I do know is that the tiki prints have been in high demand in recent years. You might check with a print gallery in the Midwest. Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell



***********************************************


May 10, 2012 Hello Judy, I was hoping you could tell me if the print from sea to shining sea is worth any monies?  Thank you so much for your time. Rose Krauss   !


RESPONSE


Rose,  I am not an appraiser; so I can 't give you a value. I see it on eBay for a variety of prices. Best regards,  Judith Holland-Lindell



***********************************************



May 8, 2012, Hello!  Can you give me any information on what appears to be a print on board of a painting entitled, "Joseph Conrad".  I've found what appears to be the original oil on canvas on a art gallery website.  I've read on your website that August never signed his paintings on the lower left but this painting is signed lower left.  There are 3 different paintings total on this art gallery website with the Joseph Condrad ship and this one is the only one signed lower left. I have not seen any prints like this one on my search.  Any info is greatly appreciated.  Thank you. Alan Anczelowicz   !


RESPONSE


Alan, The Joseph Conrad is in print. The original hangs at our son's house. Be careful of prints that look like originals. At one time there was a process that transferred the print to canvas. Extra brush strokes added and they were sometimes sold as originals. Today we have giclee prints that are sometimes printed on canvas but they are still not originals. As far as the signature goes August usually did not sign on the left but if the painting didn't provide the right spot for it he sometimes signed on the left. I hope this answers your questions. If not try me again. Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell.




***********************************************



Nov 7, 2011, Judy,   My mom recently inherited the painting in the attached photo.  She doesn’t have anywhere to put it and wanted me to help her sell it.  Do you have any information about this painting?  Or do you know of a gallery that specializes in August Holland paintings that may want to purchase it or place it on consignment?   It is about 45” x 30”.    Sincerely,   Chris Peterson   !



RESPONSE


Becky, I believe this painting was done before 1965. Do you know how much you want for it? The Kavanaugh Gallery in West DesMoines, Iowa is the only gallery I deal with anymore. The phone number and web site is on August's website.  You might check with them. Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell




***********************************************



Oct 31, 2011, Hi Mrs. Holland, My name is Marty Cossio and I have a painting by August Holland from the United States Commemorative Fine Art Gallery. Certificate number 152 and I was wondering the estimated value of the painting From Sea to Shining Sea signed by August Holland. I would appreciate any help you can offer me, thank you.   Marty Cossio !



RESPONSE


Marty, You have a print. The painting was done in 1996 and printed by a company in Ohio. They distributed it all over the world.  Each one had a certificate such as you have.  Many are available on eBay at a variety of prices. That is about as much as I can tell you. Best Regards,  Judith Holland-Lindell





***********************************************



Oct 12, 2011 I purchased a beautiful maritime painting from flea market many years ago - ship sailing in ocean. It is signed S. A. Holland. Would this be from August Holland ? Thanks Dan P. !



RESPONSE


Dan, You DO NOT have an August Holland painting.  This S. A Holland has been around for years with a bloody shark painting that was done right after August did  a very nice shark painting for a puzzle company in Indiana right after the movie "Jaws" came out.  There is no relationship. Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell




***********************************************



Oct 10, 2011 what is the value of the painting  from sea  to shining sea  Thank you. Evohn Sartorius !



RESPONSE


I honestly don't know. It is a print and is sold for a variety of prices on eBay. Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell




***********************************************



Sep 30, 2011 what lighthouse is painted on the sea to shining sea piece?   Susan Wohlers !



RESPONSE


Sue,  It is no particular lighthouse. Painting a lighthouse into the painting with no particular one in mind just means August used "artistic license". Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell




***********************************************



Sep 28, 2011, Judy, I e-mailed you a couple of years ago about the painting "Tomorrow is here to Stay" I finally found a fairly large print and had it framed and matted. Looks beautiful in our livingroom. I will always remember visiting his studio while he was working on this piece. That made a lasting impression on me and having you as a Art teacher gave me the ability to appreciate the beauty in life around us. I thank you for that. My friend Sharon said you had gotten re-married and I wish you much happiness. Thank you, again, Patti Hitchins Setchell !



RESPONSE


Dear Patti, Thank you so much for writing! Believe it or not I do remember you! I do appreciate hearing from former students.  Mostly I loved hearing that I passed on to my students all that August taught me about God's gifts of beauty around us. I am glad that you found the print you were looking for. You might be interested in hearing that it was used in two movies in Canada in the last ten years. Yes, I am happily married again. This time to a magnificent weaver named Dick Lindell.  He makes women's silk shawls. So I have been learning about a different art form in the past few years. Most sincerely, Judith Holland-Lindell




***********************************************



February 26, 2011 To whom it may concern,   I have come into possession of the Painting “A Rose by Any Name,” and I was wondering what the this painting’s value is? I would like to find out the value of both canvas and paper. I truly appreciate the help that anyone can give me, and if anyone is interested  in purchasing this painting from my brother and myself please feel free to contact me.   Thank You, Patrick !



RESPONSE


Patrick, We prefer to keep this page as a place for sharing information about August Holland's works. We don't intend it as a place to enable others to sell anything. If you wish to sell your painting you can contact the Kavanaugh Gallery in West DesMoines, Iowa. Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell

July 20, 2011, Hi  I have the August Holland "From Sea To Shining Sea"painting Hows much is this painting worth? !



RESPONSE


Somer, You have a print of this painting.  Many of these were printed and distributed all over the world.  I don't know how much it is worth.  I just wanted you to know that it is a print. Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell




***********************************************



May 6,2012. I, too, have a print of the western town. It has the saloon, livery and hotel, etc. in the picture, but what is the name of the print??! I have seen several inquiries but no answers. There is no Boise Smith on it. It is a framed print and I would like to know of a ballpark value, too. Thanks. Stephen James !



RESPONSE


Stephen, You haven't seen a name because I can't remember it and I don't have a print myself. Is there no name at all on it? I have no idea what the value might be.  I am not qualified to be an appraiser. I am sorry I couldn't be of more help. Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell




***********************************************



Apr 11, 2012. Hello,   My mother passed and left me an original painting by August Holland called “Lightning” , it is set in a beautiful gold lighted frame that when lit makes the colors of the ship and ocean seem to come alive… I have no idea of its value; I only know she told me she paid quite a bit for it “was never sure what that meant”  Is there any way to determine what this painting is valued at?   Best regards, Kevin Kuster   !



RESPONSE


Kevin,  The best way to get an appraisal is to go to the Kavanaugh Gallery in West DeMoines, Iowa. Their phone number and email address is on August's website. They are handling all of August's remaining pieces of art. You may even be able to do it by email. If you have problems getting in touch with them let me know and we will find a way to get to them. Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell




***********************************************



Mar 30, 2012. Hi Judy, I hope you can help me. I am trying to locate a print of a painting by August Holland that used to hang in my parents living room when I was growing up. I have attached a picture of it to this email. I have looked all over the internet and can't seem to find it anywhere. Please help. Thank you, Kimberly Ullius !



RESPONSE


Kimberly, I would love to be able to help you.....but I don't have any of these prints.  I sold the original in 2004 and I have not seen any of the prints available. The only place you might keep checking is eBay. I am sorry I don't have a better suggestion. Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell




***********************************************



Mar 26, 2012, Good afternoon Judith:               I have a print by August. It is sea to shining sea.. the US Commemorative Fine Art Gallery piece.  For certain reasons we are letting go of most of our art. Would you know what is it worth, or direct us to one that would know.    Thanks for your time. We really appreciate August's works.                            Darrell Breden !



RESPONSE


Darrell, I don't know the exact value but thousands were printed and sent all over the world. If I were you I would check eBay. It is sold there for a variety of prices. Best regards,  Judith holland-Lindell

Jan 26, 2012. I was looking through old items and painting my aunt has and we came about a painting  with a Spanish Dancer and I believe its a hat or a fan at the bottom.  It has your the name August Holland on it. !



RESPONSE


You are right. You have a print of one of the Spanish paintings done by August. There was a pair and I believe they were printed by Goes Lithographing in Chicago.




*********************************************** Jan 11, 2012. Thank you for answering so soon- I just love it- my husband got it at an auction and was going to resell it and since I love the ocean so much, I claimed it and brought it to work so I could imagine I was there whenever I wanted to.  And as you say, that is it’s true worth.  I looked online at some of his other paintings and they too are beautiful.  Have a good day! Carolyn Buchanek !

RESPONSE


Carolyn,  I am very happy that you love the print.  I, too sometimes wish I were there. As for the value thousands were printed and distributed all over the world. I see it often on eBay . It amazes me that there are so many prices for it.  I really have no idea of its true worth. Continue enjoying because therein lies the value. Best regards,  Judith Holland-Lindell

Dec 26, 2011 Hello, I have a print of August Holland's "Sea to Shining Sea" and I was wondering how much it is worth. I am aware that it's a print, however I'm wondering if the sticker on the back that is blue with gold writing, it reads "United States Commemorative Fine Art Gallery". I'm not sure what it's really worth my dad won it from somewhere. Thanks! Carrie !



RESPONSE


Carrie, Many of these prints were distributed all over the world. All had the same sticker on the back. If you look at eBay you will find many values for it.  I hope that helps. Best regards,  Judith Holland-Lindell

Nov 30, 2011. I entered a contest a number of years ago, and I was a winner of a beautiful picture done by August. Often wondered what the value of it was. Today I cleaned the picture again, and decided to look up the artist, and was amazed to find the picture that I have, listed on the internet.I feel honored to have won it. I framed it, and have enjoyed it since. Now we moved into a condo, and it will be displayed in the hall near our unit for others to enjoy too. Every one who has seen it already, just loves it. Thank you, El Donna Harbarth !



RESPONSE


Thank you for your note. August would be pleased that you are enjoying the print! Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell




***********************************************



Sep 28, 2011, Hi Ms Judy I have a painting signed by your husband it's the Fire God   is this a print or original? I haven't heard nor read anything on that   paticular one but any way I love his work thanks for your time Veronica !



RESPONSE


You are one of the few who have written about this particular painting. I am glad you enjoy it. It was one of four tiki paintings that August did in the 60's.  The most popular was the "Pearl of Wisdom".  The others were "Drums in the Night", "Fire god", and I am sorry I can't remember The other one. Many of these prints were transferred to canvas; so many thought they had originals.  I don't think you have the original; but to be on the safe side you might take it to a reputable gallery.  They should be able to tell you. Thank you for writing. Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell




***********************************************



Sep 26, 2011, i think i have the original painting of the romantic theme how may i find out if it is or not ? please let me know thank you . eddie Please describe your picture so that I know which one you are asking about. hi thank u for responding so quick the painting is the romantic themes it shows a balcony in the back ground and a lute and a rose i ll be waiting for ur response thank u in advance !



RESPONSE


You have a print of "A Rose by Any Name". It was printed in1966 by Goes Lithographing in Chicago. Many prints are out there and many were transferred to canvas. So they look like originals but are still prints. The modern version of these is giclee prints that are done by computer. I also know that you have a print because I still own the original. It hangs in my dining room.  The handkerchief in it was my wedding handkerchief back in 1964. You can check eBay to see what it is being sold for presently. Best regards,  Judith Holland-Lindell




***********************************************



Sep. 26, 2011 I have in my possession a print in oil from sea to shining,by August Holland, I won it as a grand prize in some contest I had entered back in the mid 90's, With it came a letter of authenticity and owner certificate in my name.would there be any value to it. Thank you in advance your feedback. Joan !



RESPONSE


Joan, You do not have the original.  It is a print that the company who printed it sent around the world with the certificate. I do not know what it Is worth but you could check out eBay. Many of them are for sale there at a variety of prices. Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell




***********************************************



Aug 30, 2011 , Hi Judith! I wrote you awhile ago, and you responded, bout the background August Holland's Peace Be Still, and how much I like the painting (I have a print). I desire very much to have a portion for a cover for a NT I edited, the New Heart English Bible, which is public domain. Is there a possibility that I could use Augusts painting for the cover? And how could I obtain a picture for the cover? Yours in Christ,very sincerely, Wayne Mitchell !



RESPONSE





***********************************************



Sep 12, 2011. I have an August Holland painting on canvas and I would like to know how much it is worth and where to sell it? Thank you . Michelle !



RESPONSE


Michelle, Most likely it is a print on canvas . If it is an original it is best sold in a gallery. If it is a print it would depend on what print it was as far as  the value is concerned.  The best place to sell prints is on ebay. I would have no idea as to what the value might be. That would depend on your gallery or  what you can sell it for on ebay. I am sorry I can't be of more help but without seeing the picture or knowing the condition of the print or painting I don't have much to go on. Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell




***********************************************




Sep 13, 2011, Hello. I wanted to see if i could get some info on this painting?(Viking Long Boats??) I am trying to buy it from the internet as an "original" but it doesn't add up. Says the back has writing and can only make out numbers with the date 9/12/67. I am not finding too much about this print online. Thank you so much for your time! Sara Bulmer !



RESPONSE


Sara, To my knowledge the original is at the Kavanaugh Gallery in DesMoines, Iowa. There are many prints out there including ones on canvas. It was printed by Goes Lithographing Co. In Chicago in 1967. Go to the August Holland website and click on the Kavanaugh Gallery. I am sure you will see the original there. It is a sofa-sized painting. There were two sizes to the prints. I hope this helps. Best regards, Judith Holland-Lindell

July 27, 2011

From  France Erickson

Subject  Viking Long Boats

Hello,

 I have a huge litho print of  Viking Long Boat's signed August Holland.  It is quite dark and dingy.  I first believe it was from the 1920's on account of its dark condition, but later read that it was  from the 1960's.  It is roughly  53 inches across and 29 inches high.  I wanted to hang it on the wall, but I can't find a space large enough to accommodate it.  I wish I had a mantle to hang it above, but I do not!


Anyhow, I saw one just like it listed on Ebay for $2500 and I know that "Buy it Now" is a lot of wishful thinking.  Could you give me an estimate on what it might realistically be worth, and , also if it is at all rare like the seller on Ebay claims.


Thank you,


Franny


Response


Franny,

I saw the one on ebay also!  It is only rare in that it is the only viking painting August ever did.  It was painted and printed in the 60's. Many prints were transferred to canvas (which at first is what I thought the one on ebay was).

I have no idea what it is REALLY worth but if this person gets $2500 for it I will be might surprised.  This is the first time I have seen this print on ebay.  I do think there is a more realistic price for it but I am sorry to say that I don't know what it would be.

I don't know if this helps you or not; but it is the best I can do.

Best regards,

Judith Holland-Lindell

Good evening,

 

I'm hoping you will be able to help me.  I purchased what I believe to be the original painting of "Sea to Shining Sea".  I purchased it yesterday at a garage sale in San Leandro, CA.

 

The measurements are 16 by 24 inches.  It is canvas on board and on the back has a gold seal with black writing.  It says, "United States Commemorative Fine Art Gallery.  It has the signature of August Holland ASMA in cursive writing.

 

I love the painting!  If it is an original, can you give me an approximate cost?  If it is a print, what would the cost be?

 

Thanks in advance for your help!


Response

Linnie Lee,

I don't want to disappoint you but....you have a print.  Thousands of these were printed and sent around the world.

All prints are signed. When they are special the print is signed in the white border in pencil.  That is what we call a "hand-signed" print.

I have no idea what it is worth. When I had them I sold them for $60.  By the way my understanding is that the original is in the archives of the company that printed it in Ohio.

I hope you are enjoying your print.


Best regards,

Judith Holland-Lindell

Thank you Judy for your quick response!  Does the prints have water color as a medium?  I was able to wipe some of the dirt and the color came off.  Is my print not signed by the artist, "hand signed print".

 

Thanks again!


2nd Response



Your print is a lithograph.  Only originals would be in oils. August rarely ever used water colors.  But inthe print business inks (as you use in your computer are used.

August did sign the original.  So when it was printed the signature also came with it. Please notice that there is no white border on the print.  Therefore there was no room to "hand-sign the prints (which of course would have been done in pencil.)

Sincerely,

Judith Holland-Lindell

From Sandi Adams-Ahlers

Subject  Name of Painting

Dear Ms. Holland-Lindell.

My husband recently found a picture that he had purchased in the 60’s or 70’s that August Holland had painted.  I believe it is a print as it has the letters GOES under Mr. Holland’s signature.  This is a large picture that is about 50” wide and has a greenish hue of Canada Geese flying across a lake.  I am wondering if it has a particular name as I have not found it on any websites.  It is in a frame and may need to remove the brown paper on the back of it, but thought I would ask you before doing that. Thank you in advance for your help.

Sandi Adams-Ahlers


Response

The print has GOES on it because it was printed by Goes Lithographing in Chicago in the late 60's. I remember the painting but can't recall the title. It is not on the website because it is an older print . Between the 60's and 80's August had over 100 pieces in print; so we chose not to put all of them on the website. The print was very popular in northern 

Wisconsin. It was sold in many souvenir storres on wood plaques.  Considering the size I am sure the plaques did not include the whole picture.

I hope this helps.

From Derrick Urquhart

Subject:  Solitude

A few years ago we purchased a framed painting that we thoroughly

enjoy, signed by August Holland with "Solitude" RXP 7312 printed at

the bottom.  It is approximately 48 in. x 24 in.


It appears to be a print on some type of board.  We've searched for

information about it, but are unable to find any.  I've attached an

image taken on our iPod.


Do you know anything about this painting?  We would love to find out

more about the painting's history...if possible when painted...is the

landscape of a real mountain and lake somewhere, etc.?


Thank you,



Response

Hi Derrick,

The painting was part of a series of four-all couples.  They were painted in the early 70's and were done especially for the publishing company.  It is no particular place.  The titles were "Solitude", "Serenade", "Together", and "Thoughts".

I hope this answers all of your questions. If not, write back.

Subject:  Oil Paintings


Dear Mrs. Holland Lindell, 

I recently read an article in the News-Tribune about an art showing at the museum in Mendota.    It became of interest to us because I have in my possession two oil paintings by August Holland.  My parents purchased them a great number of years ago from Mr. Holland.  I believe they were purchased in the early 50’s or so.  They are two paintings of the Starved Rock area.  One is of Lover’s leap and the other is of an entrance into the park.    If my memory serves me correctly, my father told me that he bought them one day from Mr. Holland while he was at Starved Rock and was a “starving artist”.  They are framed and have his signature on them, one printed and one written.  They are in their original frames with the original paper backing on them.  I did not want to disturb the backing so I don’t know if there could be a date or any other information on the back side.  My parents displayed these paintings in their living room for all these years and now after having passed away I have inherited them. 

 We went to the Mendota  museum yesterday and the women there were most helpful in showing us all of his art.  He certainly was a varied artist.   We didn’t know of your open house last week so unfortunately we were a week late for that and missed meeting you.    I must read the paper in a more timely fashion!!

 I was wondering if you would like to see these paintings?  I would be most happy to have you see them  and perhaps you could verify them in some way.   If so, you can call me at most any time or leave me a message and I’ll call you back.  Or we did take some pictures that we can send via the computer to you too.

 Thank you for your time.

 Sincerely,

Joyce Koontz


Response

Joyce,

It is wonderful to hear from you!  I, too, am sorry you missed the opening.  I would love to meet you and see the paintings.  I promise to call and maybe we can get together.  He must have done these paintings in the 50's because he never painted at the Rock after I met him.

Best regards,

From John Landrum

Subject: PAINTING

My girlfriend has a painting signed by August Holland. We have researched on the internet and found the name to be The Rose of any time.

(The Balcony) It is on canvas and we know over 50 years old. It was in her parents home and they are both deceased. What can you tell us about the value of this painting? 


RESPONSE:

Hi John,

First of all the title is "A Rose by Any name".  Your girlfriend has a print. It was published by Goes Lithographing in 1996 and was done for an Ars Pro Artibus program.  The theme is Romeo and Juliet; hence the balcony, rose, violin and ring. Many of these prints were transferred to canvas and look like orginals but are not.  I still own the original because it is my wedding handkerchief in the painting.  August and I were married in 1964.

I cannot give you a value on the print because I really don't know the value.  I do know that I get a lot of email about the print and that in many cases it has been passed down three generations.  There are a lot of them out there.

If you want an idea of the value my suggestion would be to look on ebay.  It is sometimes for sale there.

Best regards,

Judith Holland-Lindell

Any information on this painting would be welcome...

 

Thank you,

Response:

Linda,

You have a print of the original.  It was printed in 1996 by a company in Ohio.  They gave the print away free if you bought a frame for it. These mailings were sent all over the world.  So mnay people have the same certificate as you with  the same idea that it is from the U.S. gallery.

The painting is of nowhere special.  August had been to the ocean so many times that he could come up with something that looked like somewhere.

I hope this answers your questions.

The original is at the company that printed it (probably in a storeroom somewhere).  I know there is no white border.  That is one of the things we never liked about the print.

I have a print and I think it is called "Geese in Flight" it is a rather large print and it is numbered under the name August Holland.  Just wondering if you have any information on this one.


Thanks!


Beth


Response:

Beth, I know the print you have but I don't think that is the title.  There really isn't a story or anything behind it.  It was just something August wanted to paint. None of those were signed and numbered prints meaning that there are only so many.  If they were it would have been written in pencil (ie- 2/100 and he would have signed his name in pencil in the white area around the print.  All prints have the artist's signature on the print.

I will get back to you another time about the title.  It may take some time to find it.

Best regards,

Judith Holland-Lindell



Hi Judith,


Thank you so much for your response.  We bought the print at a store in Faribault MN about 5 years ago, that was a type of thrift store that goes to estate sales.  We liked the scene, it reminded us of when we were living on the Wisconsin side of Lake Superior.  We have a small showroom for our furniture here in Waseca, MN, and the print hangs on the wall there.  Some customers have asked us if we were willing to sell it to them but we have to tell them that it isn't for sale! We like it too much to part with it.  As I was admiring it this morning I decided to find out about the artist which brought me to the website. 

I have some other art that is numbered and signed but I do not see if that is the case on this print because it is framed.  Either way it is such a beautiful piece and goes so well with the decor in our show room!  I plan to go to Des Moines and see if I can get some other prints by this artist because I think it would be nice to have a little collection of them!


Yes it would be nice to know what the real title of this is! Thank you again!

No, the painting is not an August Holland.  If you look carefully at the paintings on the website you will see that August's paintings are much more detailed.  The first clue was the signature.

Yes, he did. I still have some of those prints in different sizes.  It was a series of four:  "Solitude", "Serenade",  "Thoughts", and  "Together".  The image in each is 12" X 12" .  There is another size that is 6" X 6".  I just looked again.  I also have "Solitude", "Thoughts", and  "Together" in a  20" X  20" size.  That has to be the size of yours.  That was a large as they were printed.

 I am currently working on the film production of 

"Wrong Turn 4".

 We have a large print of your husband's that we would like permission 

to use as wall dressing in one of our sets.

 I believe the image is called "Tomorrow is Here to Stay", I have 

attached a photo of it.


 We would need you to sign the attached release form to be able to use 

the artwork.

Response

 

I have reviewed your document and I am reluctant to give you a release for such a broad spectrum of uses.  I don't mind it being used in the movie or being shot from different angles; but your document seems to be asking for a release for the use of "Tomorrow is Here Today" by anybody, at any time, in any media, in any manner for all time.


That kind of document I will not sign.  If you care to reword the document so it only relates to this movie with the title of the painting included in the document I will reconsider.


Best regards,

Judith Holland-Lindell

 

REPLY

 

I've added the title of the painting and have underlined the title of the movie in the release. If you need more changes than this or if you would like to add a note to it - I will have to run it by 20th Century Fox.

Subject: Woodland scene
Can you identify the painting in the attached photo? It is obviously signed by August Holland and I had always assumed it was an original oil on canvas. But, looking on your website I found an answer to another person where you indicated that sometimes a print was rendered in oil to make it look like an original??? So, I’m confused. How can I tell what I have here?

What I know about it is that my mother and father brought it back with them from a trip to St. Louis. (We lived in northern Illinois at the time) This would have been sometime in the 70's or early 80's. I had the impression that they bought it either directly from your father? Or from a nearby gallery as they were passing through. I really don’t know. The canvas size is 24 by 36 and there is a cardboard backing on the frame. If there is anything on the canvas under this, I don’t know. There is a stamp on the frame that indicates it was probably made in Mexico.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

 

Response

You have an original.  The Winters Gallery was located in St. Louis for a short time.  The painting you have was done in northern Wisconsin near Manitowish Waters.  August loved that part of this country.

As to the prints on canvas- in the 70's and 80's there was a process of transfering a print to canvas and adding brush strokes to make it look like an original.  This was done with many prints and they looked so real that some thought they were originals.  Now we have giclee prints that are actually printed on canvas via the computer.  However they are still prints made to look like originals.

I hope you are enjoying your paintings and I hope I have clarified the prints on canvas.

By the way, August was my husband but thank you for the compliment.

August Holland Artwork
We recently aquired 2 August Holland prints and have been unable to find any information on them.  One is a print with the title "Planet Base Station" #168 in the lower left corner.  The other has no title that we can read, but is of spaceships in flight.  Can you please give us any history or information about these prints?

These were both printed by a company in Rockford, Il named Giant Photos.  They were done primarily for school  children  and were distributed in schools all over the U.S. and maybe Canada.  They were done in the mid 60's when space travel was beginning and all were fascinated with it.  They sold for 50-75 cents apiece.  That is about all the history there is to them.  Giant Photos no longer exists.

I'm a single mother working full time and going to school online to get my degree in Graphic Design. I know enough to be sure this is simply a print. you can see by the fake repetitive brush strokes simulated by intentions in the paper. But I love it all the same. I just moved into my own apartment and my grandma had some pictures she gave me to put on these blank bland white walls. I love art and blank walls that I'm not allowed to paint is a nightmare. She gave me this print as one and it has some water damage from her keeping it in the garage but i plan to fix that later. I just would love to know if it was a print from August Holland and if so the title of the wonderful piece. Thank you for your time. Also thank you for your website and enthusiasm to you husbands work. You are such a wonderful person for dedicating your time to his efforts.

Response


I recognize the print but I can't give you a titile for it.  It was most likely done in the late 60's or early 70's.  I will hang onto your email and if I run across the title I will send it to you.
Good Luck in your career.  Things have changed so much in the art world I wouldn't know where to tell you to begin.
Persue it but also have a steady job to make your living.  It took August many years to become known and he still isn't known the way he wanted.  He died just a s he was making it in the art world.
I have the web sight to keep his name out there so he won't be forgotten.
Thank you for your comments.

You have a print.  This was the first piece August had in print.  It was done in 1962.  We kept the original along with the first print that came off the press.  It was very popular in northern Wisconsin and was found in souvenir stores on pieces of bark and wood.

Do you recognize this painting?  I didn't see it in the galleries.  The painting 

was in our Michigan cottage when we purchased it in 1980.  It is perfect for the 

area, since deer hunting is such a big part of the Kalkaska region, in the 

northern lower peninsula.

 

Response

I certainly do  recognize the painting.  I believe it is a print done in the 70's..August had over a hundred pieces in print by 1980 so we couldn't put them all on the web site. August would be very happy to know how much you are enjoying it as am I. We used to spend a lot of time in northern Wisconsin; so I am sure that is where the idea came from.  I am sorry to say I don't remember the tiltle..
Thank you for writing to me.

He has the other tiki print and really wants this one....I would love 2 get it for him for christmas...if u don't have one is there a place I could purchase it?? Thank u for your time:)

Response

Hi,
I would love to say that I have one for you but I am afraid I don't.  It is possible that the original is around somewhere but I am in the midst of moving and haven't seen it recently.  should I look for it.  I have no idea what it would sell for but could check.
Have you checked ebay?  That is where I have found some that I wanted to keep. Don't give up just yet.  I will help you look. I will be in touch again.
Best regards,

Allen on October 18, 2010

Hello   I have a question about the Romeo & Juliet pitcure I bought one but I don`t think this is a print it is on canvas it don`t have a print look this one has all of the brush strokes unlike a print that is kind of smooth besides the canvas look this one is 24 x 36 can you tell me anything about this picture     


Response


I certainly can.  The title of your painting is "A Rose by Any Name". It was printed by Goes Lithographing in Chicago in the mid 60's for their ars pro artibus program. You are right in that it is a depiction of Romeo and Juliet.  You have a print on canvas. This process was very popular then.  The print was transfered to canvas and brush strokes added.

The handkerchief in the painting was my wedding handkerchief.  August and I were married in 1964 and he wanted my handkerchief in the painting.  I still own the original painting.  It hangs in my dining room and is a favorite to this day.

:Prints of this painting sold at Marshall Field in Chicago and they were also offered as a premium in the Gold Bond stamp book. (In case you are not old enough to remember premiums were offered for green or gold stamps which were given for buying certain products and we put in special stamp books. The boos were redeemed for premiums.) "The Rose was one of those premiums in  the Gold Bond Stamp catalog.

I hope you are enjoying it as much as I do.

Best regards,

I have greatly enjoyed the Peace Be Still print that I purchased on St Thomas in 1996.

I still have it over my desk. I wonder when he painted it and any other tidbit.

 

Thank you,

 

God bless you

 

Response:

 

Many have enjoyed this print and been inspired by it.  August painted it in the early 90's (I am sorry I can't remember the exact date).   There is no special story except that I encouraged him to paint a religious painting or two. August was a deeply religious man and had not painted anything religious since l962.  So he chose to do Jesus calming the sea and Jesus with the apostles catching fish entitled "Casting the Net".

The originals of both are 4 Ft. X 6 Ft. and are quite impressive.

I am glad you are enjoying "Peace-"  and hopefully it brings you peace.

Peace be with you!

Response:

Hi,
The print your are refering to is "From Sea to Shining Sea".  It was printed in 1996 by a company in Canton, Ohio.

  I have a beautiful print on canvas of a lion, it's signed August Holland, but there is not a date. Can you give me any information about the original painting? Thank-you.

                   

Response:

I think I still own the original.  It was done as part of a series of 6 African Animals in 1970 For Donald Art Company in New York (It no longer exists).  Four of the animals were made into puzzles by a company in Indiana.  Our three-year-old son was afraid to go into the studio when August was painting this picture.  The orginals are 40" X 40".
Those are the facts I have for you.

I have a print of "Viking Long Boats" that is roughly 26 1/2" by 50 1/2", I was wondering if you could give me an estimate as to what it's worth or tell me any information on it. Thank you for your time!

Response:

I am sorry I can't tell you the value of your print because I really don't know. That is one I don't think I have ever even seen on ebay.  There is no story to it except that it is Viking boats.  It was done for Goes Lithographing in Chicago in the mid 60's. The original is at a gallery in  Iowa.

Kathryn on Aug. 11,2010

About twelve years ago, my mother-in-law passed away  and she had a print by August Holland that had a  rose, handkerchief and a violin on it.  This picture always hung over her buffet in the dining room. After her death I acquired this print.  The print looks great and is framed in what looks like a pecan or light mahogany frame with a gold strip on the inside.  This is a beautiful picture and just wonder if it is of any value.  Also, where should this be hung in my home and should it be in a more expensive frame?


Thanks for your response.

 

Response:

I don't know the value of your print. Is it on canvas?  Many were transfered to canvas in the early 70's.  The theme of the painting is Romeo and Juliet.  It was done for Goes Lithographing Company in Chicago in 1966.  I still own the original and it hangs in my dining room over the buffet!  The handkerchief in the picture was my wedding handkerchief as August and I were married in 1964. The handkerchief alone was used on box covers at a handkerchief company in Puerto Rico in the 70's.  Even though I don't know the value of it I can tell you that I have had the most emails about this print since I started this website in 1999.

Connie Archer on June 20, 2010:

Have a framed picture from the Artist August Holland and has the marking on the back where it has been in a art gallery.

In the back it has a gold sticker that reads UNITED STATES COMMEMORATIVE  FINE ART GALLERY. 

It is a picture of a light house and sea gulls, body of water and clouds. Can you give me information on this piece of art please.

Thank you, Connie

Response

Connie,
I would check with ebay for value.  There were thousands printed  and actually sent free all over the world. 

Whoever wanted one was offered a deal on the frame.  I have none left.  When I had them I sold them for $60. 

There are many of August's paintings in print out there.  His paintings have been in print since 1962;.  eBay has some of them but many of "From Sea to Shining Sea".

Pedro on June 14, 2010:

Hi my name is pedro miranda sorry to bother you but a few years back your husband called me on the phone.

Told me I had won one of his paintings and he sent me the painting and a certificate but I misplaced the certificate

and lost it and would like to know if there is anyway I could get another certificate and I would also like

to saythat I'm very sorry to here about his passing thank you. 

Thank you and may god bless You

Response:

Dear Pedro,
 You may have won a print of one of August's paintings ("From sea to shining Sea"); but it was not August who called you.  It was a company in Ohio that was promoting this print.  I am sorry to say that there was only one certificate printed for your print. They are no longer promoting this painting.  So I am sure it is not possible to get another one.
I do hope you are enjoying the print.

Debra on April 14, 2010

Me and my mom think we found an August Holland seascape painting. It has the name August at the bottom of the painting.

We haven't tore the paper off the back of the painting. It has the picture name Sunrise and Sails,

it also has the picture number and the style number. We saved it from a church dumpster across the street from our house.

The colors are very beautiful and it is in tact. There is only a couple of tiny scrapes.

The frame is in pretty good shape. So please e-mail me back. We live in Nephi, Utah.

I am 11 years old and this is a great find. Thank you very much

Response:

Hi Debra,
You probably found a print if it has a number and style. I would need apicture of it to tell for sure.  August always signed his name August Holland- never just August.  the title of the picture does not sound familiar.
If you can send me a picture of it then I can tell you for sure.  Thank you for your note.
Best regards,

Blair on March, 2010

Dear Mrs. Holland,


About six years ago I was moving into an apartment building and the people

who had the place before me left this picture behind. I have searched high

and low trying to find out any history on the artist. By chance is the August Holland

you are talking about on your site? I have enclosed a few pictures for you

to verify if it is or not. Please get back with me when you can!

Your Friend in Arkansas,


Blair Tinkle

Response:

Blair,

You have a print of "So Flies the Moon"".  It was printed by Goes Lithographing in Chicago sometime in the late 60's or early 70's.

And... yes it is one of Mr. Holland's works.  That is about all I can tell you about the picture. I don't think it is a real place et. cet/

I hope this satisfies your  quest.

Best regards,

Judith Holland-Lindell

Hello,
  I have an August Holland painting. I checked out your website and in the text it says it is most likely a print. Would you be able to send me any other information on this painting. or the value of it.
 I have attached a picture of it. 
   Thanks
    Cheers

Response:

Hi,

You definitely have a print. It was done in 1962 by Goes Lithographing in Chicago.  It was the very first piece that August had in print.  He loved going to northern Wisconsin and did many landscapes at the time. I still own the original as well as the first print that came off the rollers.

I have no idea about the value of the print. Many of them have been sold on ebay for a variety of prices.

Best regards,

Judith Holland-Lindell

Re: The Pearl of Wisdom

i understand that there are many prints but how do you tell if it is a print or not?

Response:

Trust me. It is. Many of the "Pearl of Wisdom" prints were transferred to canvas. Some even had unusual things done to them like several coats of plastic to give them a three-dimensional look. We had the original and it was somehow destroyed.

Best regards, Judith Holland


Jim Popehn on October 9, 2008

Hi Judy,

I recently ran across the “Ducks” print in a antique store and I liked it so much that I bought it. Could you please tell me the name of this print. It is in a wood frame but not behind glass, do you know the value of this print? It is signed by August Holland but it’s not numbered.

Do you know how many of these prints were made? Would it be wise to have it taken out of the old wood frame and matted and framed like new or should I leave it as is? I guess it might depend on what the value of this print is worth. I must admit, I had never heard of Mr. Holland before I purchased this print and was very surprised at his many fine successes as an artist. Please tell me all you know about this print that I have bought.

Thank you and best regards

Jim Popehn

Response: Hi Jim, I know the print you are talking about. It was done in the mid 60's and was very popular in northern Wisconsin. (It was most likely the second piece August had in print.) At that time you could find it in all the souvenir stores in the north woods. Usually it was glued onto a piece of wood or used as decoration on wooden boxes. Thousands were printed by Goes Lithographing in Chicago. I think it is unusual to find it framed. I am sorry I can't give you a value as I am not an appraiser. It is definitely not a limited edition. The title escapes me at the moment; but I will keep your note and respond to title as soon as I have had time to look it up. I am glad you found it and are enjoying it. When August did it he was spending a lot of time in northern Wisconsin during the summer.

Best regards, Judith Holland


Greg Hamilton on September 21, 2008

Hi Judy This painting was purchased at the Sorich Gallery in Chicago and is Titled Rocks and Surf with a paper on the back describing the painting and artist....It measures 30" X 40" and is oil on canvass....It is signed August Holland...This painting came from the estate of a high ranking naval officer....I am interested in selling it but would like to realize a fair price for his estate....Can you help me with any interested parties.

Thank You.....Greg Hamilton

Response: Greg, How I would love to see that painting! And... It must have quite a history. August was with the Sorich Gallery in the mid 50's long before my time. I am not an appraiser so I can't give you a value and whoever does it would have to see the painting. You will have to find one that knows August's work preferably in the midwest. The Kavanaugh Gallery in West DesMoines, Iowa handles most of August's work now. You can find a link to them on the August's website. Another one that may help you is Landmarks Gallery in Milwaukee, Wi. I would be interested in hearing what you find out. 

Best regards, Judith Holland


Eloise Vowotor on August 4, 2008

Hi Mrs. Holland,

I have an oil painting by August that my sister gave to me when I visited  Lancaster, Pa recently. I would like to know the date of the picture. It is 53" x 29". On the back it has that it is a Turner Decorative Wall Accessory.  It is also entitled, "Moonlight Magic". On the back are these numbers S 45, TW 31. It is item # 34421. I checked your web-site, but did not see a picture of the painting. Only  one or two persons described the painting that I have. Could you tell me how  many of these paintings were printed? and do you know the cost of the painting? Thanks So Much and I hope you are doing fine and I wish you many blessings.

Eloise Vowotor
Retired Archivist

Response: Hi Eloise, Fisrt of all you do have a print. Since turner did this one it was done in the early 70's and thousands were printed. It was sold in furniture stores and places like Walmart. I have no idea what the cost is. If I have not answered all of your questions do not hesitate.

Best regards, Judith Holland


Bobby Hunt on July 22, 2008

Good morning, Ma'am.

I recently came in possession of a copy of "A Rose By Any Name", in a gold-leaf style frame, with red inlay. The print is about 40x30, and has Mr. Holland's signature in red in the lower right corner. It appears to be on canvas, though I am looking at a small tear in the back of the paper that covers the back of this frame. Can you tell me something of this. It is a beautiful picture, and I do not want to damage it, nor tear off the paper that is glued to the back of the frame. Of note, it appears that staples were put into the frame to hold the print in.

Thanks.

Bobby Hunt

Response: Good Morning Bobby, I can tell you a lot about this print. I still own the original and it hangs in my dining room! You most likely have a print on canvas. Many of these prints were transferred to canvas and some thought they had originals because of this. It was printed in l966 by Goes Lithographing Company in Chicago for their Arts Pro Artibus program.

The painting was done for "Romeo and Juliet"; hence the balcony, mandolin, rose, and wedding ring. The handkerchief is an added attraction. It was my wedding handkerchief as August and I were newlyweds at the time. This was painted during August's "still life" period. This type of painting is not what he is known for but I seem to get more email on this type than any other. This particular print has been passed down in families for as many as three generations. I am always pleased to hear someone has come into possession of it. If you have any other questions I will gladly try to answer them. I do not however, know the value of the print.

Best regards, Judith Holland


Kathy Swann on June 30, 2008

Hi Judy,

I believe I have the original painting of the mallards. It is painted on a piece of cardboard. Can you tell me if this is the original and how much it may be worth?

Sincerely,

Kathy Swann

Response: If it is on cardboard IT IS NOT AN ORIGINAL! It is a print that has been glued to the cardboard, August NEVER painted on cardboard.

Best regards, Judith Holland


Karl Iverson on June 19, 2008

Any chance for a print run of Pearl of Wisdom?  All of the ones I've seen "in the wild" are damaged or worn in some way or another. 

Sincerely, 

Karl Ivanson

Response: Karl, This was suggested several years ago at which time I contacted Goes Lithographing. They wanted $150. to look up everything it would take and then wanted $2400. to reproduce 1000 prints. Sooo unless I had an outlet for 1000 prints I couldn't afford to reprint it. If I had a extra one I would sell it to you. I just gave the last one I had to our local museum. Keep looking You may find a good one yet!

Best regards, Judith Holland 


Todd Maslyk from Edmonton on May 15, 2008

Good day Judy,

I have a print of From Sea to Shiny Sea. It has United States Commemorative Fine Art Galley emblem sticker on back of the picture.

Could you tell me about picture and approximate value. It is excellent shape.

Thanks you, Take Care,

Todd Maslyk Edmonton, Alberta

Response: Todd, The print you have was done in 1996 for a company in Canton, Ohio. They own the original and printed thousands that were distributed all over the world. It is no special lighthouse and no special place (artistic imagination). When I had these I sold them for $60. But I see them for a variety of prices on ebay.

Richard Sisler from Hawaii on May 6, 2008

HI Judy, I am Richard Sisler , former co-owner of Floralcrest Inc. and was a member of The Lutheran Church in Mendota. We moved to a retirement community in Hawaii two years ago. We still e-mail to a many of our friends in Mendota.

August came into the shop several times to buy flowers. (I remember especially daisies. I believe he said they were for you and that they were your favorite. He also bought roses to paint. I’d like to believe some of the flowers he got from me are those in the paintings I see on the web pages. I so admired his work and ability and tried to persuade him to teach me. Of course, he was understandably way to busy to teach anyone.

I was searching Google today and am excited at all the information I found regarding August and his paintings and thrilled to be able to view again, some I admired back then. At one art show at the Civic Center I remember admiring two small oils that had such beautiful lighting effects. I think they were selling at $800 each way back then and I had so little spare cash. All his paintings were outstanding. I recall you explaining what a difference matting made in displaying the oils.

Karen and I are retired now living in Hawaii and I am studying watercolor at Kapioloni College. I am framing some originals and have been a featured artist at our Hawaii Kai complex. My teachers are very complementary but I am just showing, not selling, still learning and having fun ) I am anxious to give my painting buddies your website links and brag that I knew you and August. When I saw your e-mail address I just had to say hello and wish you well.

Aloha, Richard Sisler

Response: Dear Richard, Of course I remember you and how happy I am to hear from you! I am glad you are still painting. Yes, daisies were "our" favorite flower with a rose or so added in. I started the website after August's death. I did not want him to be forgotten and it certainly has worked. I was fortunate to have a friend in Wheaton who designed it for me. Did you go to the Kavanaugh website under galleries? They have the bulk of August's work there. They just put a two-page add in a magazine called "Fine Art Connoiseur" If you get a chance to see it the ad is fantastic! It must be great to be living in Hawaii. I have only been there once but enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you so much for writing. Keep in touch. I"d like to see the work you are doing now. Maybe you could send some pictures.

Best regards, Judy Holland


Antonious Hell on May 4, 2008

RE: Tiger Painting

I have a painting done by August Holland that's signed in the lower right hand corner. I know its an old painting that my grandmothers had for close to 40-50 years. There are no markings on the back on the canvas but the lower left on the back of the frame has, 198-20 followed by 16 8/. I'm not sure if the 16/8 is the price or what. I'm really just curious about the painting since I grew up with it over her fireplace ever since I was born.

Response:  The tiger is a part of an animal series that August did for Donald Art in New York in 1970. There were six animals in three sizes the largest of which was 40" X 40". Our youngest son was afraid to go into the studio when the tiger was on the easel!.

My grandparents were from Utah and they had a painting which I admired as a child! I have learned was called From Sea to shining Sea. It has a seal on the back which I have also learned is common with prints. I am no spring chicken! How can I tell if it is real?

Response: You do not have an original. It is a print that was done by a company in Ohio in 1996 and distributed all over the world.

Best regards, Judith Holland



JT Joe Tweed on February 15, 2008

I have the print "From Sea to Shining Sea", how much is it worth?

Thank you.

Kimberley Simpson from Auckland, New Zealand on February 12, 2008

I just purchased the print 'White Mantle' and it is beautiful. Could you give me any information about it? I have looked through the site and his work is just stunning. I will keep a lookout for more prints in the future. 

Warm regards

Kimberley Simpson

Response:  I am so happy that you are enjoying your print. It is no special place.  August sometimes did what you might call a composite of place he enjoyed.

Best regards, Judith Holland

Karri Spanbauer from Oshkosh, WI on November 17, 2007

My mother-in-law gave me two framed pictures. They both have the copyright HMCO. One is a picture of a girl wearing a pink dress she is wearing a hat and holding a flower almost up to her nose, it has a signature of "Germaine". The other is picture of a ballerina wearing a long white tutu and a flower crown. She has her arms over her head and she is on pointe, it has a signature "Sophie". I would love any information you may have regarding these pictures. Thank you Karri Spanbauer Oshkosh, WI

Response: Karri, These are not August's paintings. I am sorry I can't tell you anything about them. Best regards, Judith Holland



Barbara Tuttle on November 4, 2007

 Hello, I have an August Holland print of a majestic lion with the number "4454" on the back. It appears to be printed on heavy cardboard with simulated brushstrokes. Can you tell me anything about it? Thanks, Barbara

Response: Barbara , Your lion is one of a series of six wild animals that August did in 1970 for Donald Art in New York (This publishing company no longer exists.) It is definitely along the decorative line because of the background. The series was printed in three sizes and also came out as puzzles done by a company in Indiana.. If that isn't enough information please write again. I have no idea as to the value of your print. Best regards, Judith Holland

I was going through my attic and found "Wuthering Heights". I don't know much about art. It's probably a print. How do I tell? Thank you, David

Response

Hi David, Wuthering Heights was printed in the 60's as part of the Ars Pro Artibus program at Goes Lithographing in Chicago. Some of the prints may have been transferred to canvas. You can tell by looking at the edges. If the color goes all the way around it is an original. If it stops and there is a white margin all the way around it is a print on canvas. That is the only way to tell other than taking it to a certified appraiser. Best regards, Judith Holland

My mother won a lithograph of August Holling's sometime in the 90's. We had no idea what a famous painter he was, but we like the imagery very much. What a wonderful surprise to find his art online and to find out what an interesting history he has had. Now whenever I look at the painting, I'll have a face to go with it, and some of it's history.

Have just discovered these beautiful seascapes and will be using them as starting points for work with my 9/10year olds who are studying the sea this autumn. I lived in Iowa some 20 years ago and enjoyed the landscapes of Grant Wood - I didn't expect, when searching the internet for sea pictures, to find the mid-west would prove to be such a fruitful source.

Both of my oldest children were born in Chicago 1960 & 1963. I just recentley received a print with August's signature from a friend of the Portland Head Lighthouse in Maine. Being a lighthouse enthusiast was thrilled to know I had one of such a special person. I have been in San Antonio Tx since 1970. I am happy to be able to share the painting with my friend. I don't know how old it is, maybe you could shed some light on this fact.

H. James Gallagher from Bullhead City, Arizona wrote on January 27. 2007, 12:18:

Approximately 20 years ago we obtained what we believe to be an original 24 x 48 seascape of a sailing ship with a smaller ship in the background. The name of the large ship in the foreground is Joseph Conrad. The painting bears a signature "August Holland" in the lower left corner and there is a small tag on the lower back of the frame with the title Before the Wind and the tag also bears the name of August Holland. We have searched various websites but found no listing for or mention of a painting called Before the Wind by August Holland. Can you tell me when it was painted, were prints sold, current value, etc. Any information you can provide will be most appreciated.

Response: You won't find this one on the web because it is an older print done in the late 60's. I am sorry to say I can not give you a value because I am not an appraiser. It was printed by Goes Lithographing Company in Chicago. Many prints were sold but I do not have exact numbers. It may have been sold at the Marshall Field Gallery or the Merrill chase Gallery at Oak Brook, Il. Both galleries are nonexistent at this time.

Response: It is most likely you have a print and not the original oil painting. This was a very popular print and thousands were framed and sold.

I have recently aquired an August Holland print from an elderly lady in my area. The print seems to be very dated and unique as it is not a maritime/seascape print. This particular painting is very deep and moody. It is red and burgundy with a crimson draping over a surface with from left to right a gold wedding band, an antique mandola or mandocello (spanish or italian/ like a mandolin) a single pink rose in a vase, a lace hankerchief and a reflection of a balcony on the right. Can anyone give me any feedback on this.

We bought a print of The Pearl of Wisdom in the early 70s and still display it in our home. We were curious as to the current value of such a print. Thank you! Kathleen Krech

Response: "The Pearl of Wisdom" was one of August Holland's most popular prints. It is an excellent example of "Tiki Art" - popular in the 60's and 70's. Thousands of this print were sold (framed and unframed) by department stores in the United States. The current value is what someone will pay for the work. There are collectors of Tiki Art, and you might try Ebay and here is a link to a Tiki Art Collector's Forum - Search on August Holland prints . But it's not a rare print, there are thousands of copies of this work displayed in homes in the United States and some overseas.


Dorothy from United States wrote on August 21. 2006, 16:38:

I was given this beautiful sea scape painting by August Holland with a United States Commemorative fine arts stamp. I was wondering if someone could explain to me what ASMA means that is next to the artist signature. I would like to also know if painting has some value.

Response: ASMA means American Society of Maritime Artists. August became a member in 1992. It is a juried association. In order to belong several pieces or slides must be sent to the organization and a panel of judges decides whether the artist is worthy of belonging to the organization. There were thousands of these "From Sea to Shining Sea" pictures printed by a company in Canton, Ohio and they were distributed all over the world. They are not signed and numbered; so their value is not as much as if they were. I am not an appraiser so I am sorry to say that I cannot give you a value. What I can say is that when I had them I sold them for $60.


Tony from ohio wrote on August 11. 2006, 08:49:

I have a picture of a tiger sighned by august holland. if you have any information about this picture it would be helpful. Thank you

Response: Your tiger is a part of a series of six wild animals that were done for Donald Art in New York in about 1970. The originals were 40" X 40". They were printed in that size and two other sizes, the smallest being 16" X 16". Besides prints they were also made into puzzles by a company in Indiana. August's biography was even on the back of the box.

Until this morning I never really heard of August Holland although I probably saw his paintings--especially "From Sea to Shining Sea" many times over the years without even thinking of the artist. I've always admired paintings of 19th century sailing ships and of the ocean. Mr. Holland was a talented artist on other themes as well. And to think he spent his life in Mendota, Illinois!

I have recently discovered August Holland's work by actually stumbling by it. I was at a thift store and there was a big painting on the floor which looked like it came from someones attic. I was walking by looking at things in a row of shelves and came to the end to stumble on this painting. I looked to see what I had stumbled on and it was a very large litho signed by August Holland of a mandolin. I looked at it and thought it was very dark for a painting but it very quickly grew on me. I inquired to the assistant as to how much it was. The assistant gave me a price and I thought it was too much so I walked away. I continued to shop around and all the while thinking about this painting, before I knew it it had consumed my whole shopping experince on whether to buy it or not. Needless to say I left the store whitout it. I came back to the store 2 hours later and paid the price of what they asked and took it home. It was like something took over me and I felt I had to have this beautiful painting and not knowing anything about this painter. Right away I did some research of him and found this site. I appologize for the lenghty message and happy I could tell someone of my experience. Thank you for this wonderful website.

Astounding. I recently purchased one of Mr. Hollands paintings while taking my kids out garage sale-ing. I did not buy his work for profit. My father is also an artist but works mostly in acrylics. Having spent most of my first 20 years living on the sea as a commercial fisherman and learning from my dad about the incredible difficulty of painting seascapes I can tell how gifted August was. When I look at the picture I can almost smell the salt spray and hear the racket of the gulls. It is incredible how one person can capture such an image in paint and convey such memories. Thank you!

I am unable to find this work among Holland's other works available to view at websites I have visited. I would like to know if this is the same artist, and if so, is this the only scene of its kind the artist painted? It is, incidentally, beautifully framed and is a wonderful addition to the decor in my house of antiques. The painting is approx. 2' x 3'.

This one was done for Romeo and Juliet; hence the mandolin, rose, ring, and balcony. The handkerchief was my wedding handkerchief as we were married in 1964. I still own the original. It hangs in our dining room. You may have a print on canvas. If you have any other questions feel free. I don't know the value of your print.

My parents have a painting by August Holland. It is very similar to "Reflecting Wings". The only difference is that there is a lighthouse on the hill. I was wondering if anyone could tell me anything about this painting. Thank You Ken Payne

I have admired August Holland's work for many years. He is certainly missed as a warm, gentle person and as a dedicated artist. We highly recommend his works.

I have an August Holland painting and was curious to know what he named this work of art. The painting I have is of a mother leopard and her cub on a lower limb of a tree. The cub is drinking from a pond and the mom appears to be looking out for signs of danger. If you can provide any information, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Judy, I find this so interesting and wish I had known of this web site. We have lost contact for so many years. The pictures are breathtaking. I remember you and Augie stopping by for a visit, I believe, during your honeymoon in california in the 1960's where I lived with my parents in Riverside, Ca. Also I visited with you in Mendota and went with both of you to our 1969 10 year high school reunion in Sterling,Ill. Regards and keep in touch. A classmate of 1959. Adrienne Henry

I thank him for such a marvelous painting and I thank you for such a wonderful website. God Bless you. Ophelia

Judy, Talked to Steve D. today. Told me he had one of August original. I am anxious to see that one. It sounds like a beauty. Is it the one that is on this site...mountains and Indians?

I bought an old painting from a second hand store, signed by August Holland. After researching his name, I found that he painted while he was in Panama, during the war. the painting i purchased is of a 8 string Mandlyn,with a rose in a vase and lace handkerchief. It also has a small wedding band in the painting. It's an oil on canvas with a Deep red backgroung. The signature looks authentic. How can I be sure it was painted by Mr. Holland in his early years?

Judith, How nice to read of your award, and the short bio of your family in the Reporter. It is always good to read about people that have been married many years and have had a true partnership. (Even better when it is someone who's name is familar to me) From what I read it is still very true, that behind every good man is a very good woman. Congratulations on your success.

While visiting a Flea Market in Benton, Arkansas I found and p purchased an oil painting of an artist I was not familiar with and I couldn't wait to look him up on the net to find out all about him. Oh, my very favorite subjects, ships and light- houses!!!!! I was surprised not to find the painting I pur- chased, it is so beautiful and I wonder when he painted it. I will definitely be on the lookout for more of his work!!!!

I was Mr. Holland's paperboy as a youth and always enjoyed looking at the work in progress when I collected the paper delivery fees on Saturday mornings. Mendota being a true farming town, it was exhilerating to see pictures of the sea and mountains that seemed so far away to a 10 year old. Well, I live in England now. I did keep a promise to myself and am happy to have 2 paintings by Mr. Holland. It is ironic that while the paintings excited my imagination to escape Mendota when I was young, they now remind me of the peace of small town life and how priveleged I was to have known Mr. Holland and seen him at work.

His art is wonderful and after reading alittle about this man, I think he must have been wonderful as well ~

I spent over 3 years on ships in the Navy and the next `7 years in the Coast Guard on several ships. I have visited the Mediteranian twice and the waters of the North Atlantic. I spent four years on ships out of Kodiak, Alaska visiting all of the Aleutian Islands and the Bering Sea. My brother still lives in Mendota, Mike Kuntzi. It is a real pleasure to find out that you are a professional artist doing nautical paintings. I would have never thought that someone out of such a small town would be recognized for his paintings of the Sea. Mendota is so far inland. But, that is probably why I chose to go to sea myself. To see what I could see. Your paintings are excellent. Regards, Tom Kuntzi U. S. Coast Guard Retired Naval Service 1959-1981

I recently bought a picture at a second-hand store that has August Holland's signature in the corner. I was researching what kind of work he might have done when I came across this web page which I have found both interesting and informative. I have emailed pictures of my picture to Mrs. Holland and hope to receive a reply. Debbie Cook
