    I have a large original oil by Archie Johnson Inger and I was wondering if you have any info based on your professional work. He was born in Idaho on June 17, 1883. During 1906-07 Inger worked as a decorative painter for Southern Pacific Railway in Ogden, UT. After moving to California, he was a resident of Los Angeles in 1916. By 1927 he had moved north to Alameda and in 1939 settled in nearby Hayward where he remained until his death on Oct. 4, 1954.

    If you know anymore about him, could you give me a call?

      Thanks for leaving your question Jonathan. I don’t think your artwork has much to do with historic Mormon Art. It appears to be an unidentifiable landscape. Ebay is your best bet. If you find something else though, I do know several collectors of historic Mormon Art

    • Scott Haskins says:

      Jonathan, I don’t know Inger’s work but I have worked on many paintings commissioned by the Southern Pacific Railway. They sought out capable, if not famous, artists so their work is often collectible. Three negative characteristics of these commissioned paintings that reflect on the value are: 1. the signatures and inscriptions of Southern Pacific Railways are usually HUGE (way out of proportion); 2. Sometimes the work of canyons and landscapes were done quickly and loosely, style wise, (perhaps they were painted to been seen from a distance) so they appeal to fewer people and 3. the paintings were sometimes very big… a little bigger than people usually buy for a living room but probably OK for a wall in an open office space.

      I’m assuming that because you found your way to this blog that the scene is presumably Utah and that Inger was a member of the LDS Church?

      Talking about railway company art, I worked on the murals in the Union Pacific Railway station in SLC years ago. These two murals are two depictions of important moments in Utah/Mormon history:

    I have an old portrait oil painting. It was probably painted in the 1840′s. It should be restored. How do I go about setting up a consultation with you? I live in Arroyo Grande, California. Thanks, John Hjalmarson

    • Scott Haskins says:

      John, I look forward to speaking with you. I’ll try you at the number you left me. My mobile number is 805 570 4140
      All my best
