: My cousin has 2 Wm. Ashbaugh paintings, they are depicitng seasons. One has "The Southern Hotel Art Galley" listed on the back. No other info. Would like to share any info you obtain on this artist.
In the late 1940,s my mother bought two oil paintings by W E Ashbaugh. I've heard that he lived north of Columbus Ohio Which makes me believe that The southern hotel refered to on the painting was located on South High Street in Columbus Ohio
