Re: Yarka french easel

Antonin Passemard
The easel in your picture is the Yarka "Russian French Easel" that was distributed in the US for a short while during the ninties. I bought mine about 15 years ago from Jerry's Artarama. Jack Richeson & Co. also carried them for awhile. Don't know why no one distributes it now, many yarka products are still sold in the US.

Yarka had a large and a medium easel. I have the medium easel and there is a label so I Googled the name of the Russian manufacture, Podolsk-Art and found this listing on ebay but it was sold in Feb. Looks like the seller deals in easels, if you have an ebay account you can contact them and see if they have more.

Links:
http://picclick.com/Yarka-French-Fie...642982601.html

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI...=110642982601+

It was distributed in the US by:
Postport Inc.
P.O. Box
Essex, MA 01929
I didn't find anything on the internet for Postport Inc.

Antonin,I would appreciate you letting me know if you find one, If not, I might be able to help. Good Luck

Keep looking, they are out there. I just now searched and found one that sold for $66 on shopgoodwill.com last February.
Have fun, Dave

Re: Yarka french easel

Antonin,

Amazing, this easel is not sold in retail markets anymore. I own a large one, it is much sturdier than a traditional french easel especially, for holding a large full pastel palette. As with others I bought mine about a decade ago. Good luck in finding one.

Re: Yarka french easel

I have one I use all the time--but I have a question about how it is supposed to hold the painting. I usually paint 8x10 or 11 x 14 and I can't figure out how it's supposed to fit on the easel.

I usually use a large board and tape my panel to that. Does anyone have another idea? Maybe something is missing from mine--I found it at our local landfill--it's great, very sturdy, but there is the panel holding problem.

Re: Yarka french easel

Judy,

With the large Yarka Easel: I use 2 different slip-in easel adapters (12x16 and 9x12) from Judson Outfitters http://www.judsonsart.com/pleinair/p...5&idcategory=0

Pictured:

1. 12x16 adapter with a 11x14 panel
2. 12x16 adapter
3. 12x16 with 9x12 adapters (with 9x12 held with a bungee cord)
4. 12x16 with 9x12 adapers with a 8x10 panel
5. Closer view of 4.

The 12x16 slip-in easel was made for a larger monster Guerilla Box that is no longer made.


Hope this was helpful,
Peg


(***disclosure: I do not get paid any funds from Judson Outfitters***)

Re: Yarka french easel

Yes I have 2 large ones and 2 mediums. I like the medium by far. On the large one a 18x24 canvas looks small ! I paint large paintings plein air but rarely over 24x36 and the medium one is the best for everything under that.
