Winter Painting, Framed

  • Details

    Stark.  Simple.  American.   Acrylic on board.  This outstanding painting with its pure composition cuts straight to the point.   At first glance, a rather plain static painting.  But when you look closer, you see basic earthy colors rich by saturation, as in a Whistler.  You see straight edged, satisfyingly clean, flat planes ~ Edward Hopper.  And you see Wyeth's balanced asymmetry, an achievement in itself.  To me, this plain American school painting is breath taking.  Signed GK.   c1950s.  19" X 15" framed; 15 5/8" X 11 5/8" visual image.
