These two were offered as one lot on ebay by Seller guilford123. Each painting is 18" x 14" and are $149.99 Buy it Now for both. They are painted on the foil-type board that Devoe often used. From a distance they look like they are painted on foil; up close you can see that it is a silvered-board. They also appear to be in the original mirrored frames that Devoe used, but as usual the mirror pieces are broken or missing.
M. Devoe typically painted several different kinds of tropical birds. The flamingos are easy to recognize, but the birds in today's selection are harder to identify. Most often they are referred to as "cranes" but this Seller calls them "egrets."
This is a painting of two egrets by M. DeVoe. Offered by ebay Seller newtexasnorton in January, 2015. Opening bid $199.99 Buy It Now. The size framed, is 28 1/4" x 34 1/4", the painting itself is approx. 24 1/4" x 30 1/8". It is not in a typical Devoe frame, so it was probably reframed at some point.
