CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A large collection of original works by Cincinnati artist T. C. Lindsay have been discovered in family attic.

The estate of Thomas J. Lindsay, a direct descendant of Cincinnati artist Thomas Corwin Lindsay (1839-1907) recently discovered close to eighty original works by Lindsay that had been stored in the attic of a family residence for over 70 years.

The artwork will be on exhibition and sale at the Eisele Gallery of Fine Art, in cooperation with Wooden Nickel Antiques.

The renowned Cincinnati landscape, portrait and animal painter was active throughout the region from 1858 to 1905.

Eisele Gallery owner and Art restoration specialist Douglas Eisele says it is unusual to find such a large collection of  previously unknown works by a noted artist like Lindsay, especially one so prominent in a local area like Cincinnati.

The recently discovered works include country scenes from surrounding Ohio and Kentucky with depictions of farmers, their families and their animals as well as historic sites.

Around 90 Lindsay works will be displayed in the Eisele Gallery for show and sale beginning March 7 through April 18, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.. The opening will be preceded by an invitation only presale preview at the Gallery at 5728 Dragon Way, Cincinnati, OH 45227. Eisele has indicated the collection will be attractively priced.
