Commentary: Eddie Rutkowski helped Schoonover with various jobs around the studio during the 1930’s, 1940’s and 1950’s. He worked on paintings and made beautiful, hand carved frames. Over the years, the artist used many of Rutkowski’s frames on his paintings, including this one of the Upper Reaches of the Delaware.
