Jules B. Dahlager Painting: A Golden Summer Day in Beautiful Behm Canal

Here's one that got away -- a small 6" x 8" oil painting on masonite board by renowned Alaskan artist Jules Bernard Dahlager of Behm Canal near Ketchikan, Alaska. The painting is signed and dated in the lower left "Jules '45" in red oil paint, and bears the printed artist label on reverse with Dahlager's ink signature, reading: "A GOLDEN SUMMER DAY/ In Beautiful Behm Canal Near/ Ketchikan, Alaska/   Painting by/ Jules B. Dahlager [artist signature]." The painting is housed in its original gold gilt Arts and Crafts-style carved frame, likely by Seattle-based framemaker Lloyd Jensen.
