    Always interested in learning more about H.N. Hyneman and seeing more works whether for sale or not. Thanks, Jeff Gold

    • I have a signed litho by H.N.Hyneman of a young couple on a canopied sailing vessel with beautiful detail. The lady has a parasol umbrella and a bustled dress.
      the gentleman wears a black cap and suit and is holding a set of binoculars as they both look out from the ship’s deck and see other sailboats on the water.
      I can not find any information about this painting. Have you seen a copy?
      I obtained it 35 years ago at an antique dealer.
      Thanks,
      Joanne Cucinello

        Sorry for the delay in reply. Not only have I seen the print, but I have alarge version of it on my wall and in my collection. It’s title is a sure winner. The man in the etching is the artist Herman Hyneman. The woman is his much younger wife Juliet. The title of the etching is entitled “A Sure Winner”, which is a double entendre – one not knowing that the couple is in love, would think its referring to the race. My version of the print has a remarque – a little print in the lower corner of cupid shooting an arrow at the boat. which supports my interpretation. Hyneman was not known as an etcher. To the best of my knowledge this is his largest, and because it was a true labor of love his finest etching.

      • Thank you, Mr. Gold, . . . for the enlightening description of this lover’s etching!
        My version has the same remarque, a little print in the lower corner of cupid shooting an arrow at the boat and the number “7”. I would never part with this this etching, as it is so romantic and lovely, especially meaningful to my husband and I, married 50 years now. However, I’ve always wondered about its value, since it would be left to my children one day. It is beautifully framed and in perfect condition. Have you any idea?

      • Jeff Gold said

        Joanne – I would think that a retail price would be around $500. There is not currently a huge demand for Hyneman’s work. That may change because there is going to be a museum show in the near future. My version of your print will be on exhibit.

      • It was kind of you to get back to me, Mr. Gold. Thank you.
        I’d look forward to hearing your feedback on the museum exhibit, since I wonder how many people have ever seen Hyneman’s talent in etching.
        Thanks again!

        I’ve now bid on this painting twice. Didn’t get it either time. Pretty sure that one day I’ll get it. In the meantime, I have an etching done of the painting, with a terrific remarque.

  2. […] Isaac’s son, Herman Naphtali Hyneman, born July 27 1849, was quite an accomplished painter.  After studying painting in Germany and France for 8 years, he returned to Philadelphia where he opened an art studio.  His works have been displayed in Paris, Philadelphia, and New York City.  To this day, several of his paintings are displayed at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the National Academy of Design in NYC.  Some of his paintings can be seen in the American Gallery, Greatest American Painters: https://americangallery.wordpress.com/2011/01/31/herman-n-hyneman-1849-1907/ […]

    My daughter inherited a painting from an originally German woman who died in October 2013 at age 97.

    The painting is by Herman Hynemann in original frame dated 1906 and called “The Letter”. It portrays a beautiful woman on a chaise lounge holding a letter. It needs to be cleaned, but appears otherwise in excellent condition.

    Does anyone know anything about this painting or where my daughter and I might find more information?

    • Jeff Gold said

      If you can send me an image, I can provide you with more information. Thanks, Jeff Gold

      • I attempted to send an email to you from an email I found on your web page (jbgold@optonline.net), but it bounced saying the recipient was invalid. My daughter would need a valid email to send images to you. Thank you.

      • Jeff Gold said

        Jbgold@optonline.net is a valid email, so is jgold1962@gmail.com, or she can even use jgold@goldbenes.com. If this is the same image that was sent about a month ago to Geoffrey Fleming, then I’ve already seen it.

        If you want to learn about Hyneman’s work, you buy Mr. Fleming’s book. The painting sent to Mr. Fleming is authentic, and similar to several others that he did. I can’t find any exhibition records for it. What is the size of the painting?

        Thanks, Jeff Gold
