Early American Figure painting

For those people who think that the Asian Painting factories of the 21st century are some new development, here is evidence that the art world doesn't change much.

C. Kramer painted these two versions of this nude painting and probably painted many more.

The seller, Edgar L. Owen, (they are a bargain, by the way) lists the paintings as originating in the early 20th century but to me they look like either eighteenth century American figure painting or nineteenth century American figure painting.
