Peter Ompir Paintings To Decorate or Collect

Peter Ompir Paintings Gallery

Peter Ompir was an outstanding folk artist who painted caricatures of people as well as some very realistic pictures. He always seemed to work his imagination into everything he painted. Because he painted on just about any object, there was always a new challenge. I think the fun of living, to him, was to take anything he could paint on and use his imagination to create an outstanding piece that everybody could enjoy. Peter Ompir Paintings are fun to collect and a very distinctive decorative  touch to anybody’s home.

About Peter Ompir

Considered one of America’s premier folk artists, Peter Ompir has been christened many names—the “Dean of American Toleware,” the "Dean of Décor Painting" and the “Father of American Decorative Painting.” In an article written by Phillip C. Myer for Craftworks magazine, Myer noted that Peter Ompir’s prolific career stands as a testament to his name, which translates as “Peter the Great.”
Having studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and at the National and American Art Academies during the Depression era, He created a niche for himself by painting antiques and common household items such as bread boards, colanders, pitchers, wooden shoes, tin trays, pails, chairs. He painted anything “I could get my hands on, from cigarette boxes to anything old or new, ” Ompir’s told an interviewer.
His fine art training, exceptional talent, and his love of unusual antique pieces enabled him to create beautifully rendered decorative objects that seem to reflect the ages, but were, in reality, newly painted.
There was a great demand for Ompir’s work in his day. His pieces sold in notable stores such as Macy's, Neiman-Marcus, Sloan's of New York, and Meier & Frank. Since each piece took weeks to create, He solicited help in the long preparatory process required on each item. Two artists, Warner Wrede and later Porter Rinehouse, assisted him in his workshop in Masachusetts. His decorated objects are highly collectible and there is a very good market for his works. Peter painted on antique tinware but also on wood items and furniture. The colors he used were always vibrant and the characters are very cute and sometime funny.

Statue of Ape with Skull

statue ape with skull

 

Bronze painted white metal monkey figure contemplating a human skull that he is holding; monkey sits upon a stack of books with one of them entitled “Darwin”, marked Esco Products, 13¼” H.

 

This Esco Products statuette was designed to mimic the infamous bronze, Affe mit Schadel (Ape with Skull), created by 19th century German sculptor Hugo Rheinhold.  In 1893, the original work was exhibited at the Great Berlin Art Exhibition.

 

Our version was replicated by Esco Products, Inc., a company started in the 1970’s that produced a range of popular statues.  This unusual  statuette would make for a great conversation piece and would fit into any décor.
