There is a lovely sense of freedom in the quasi- abstraction of this autumnal landscape. The artist is B. Humphries and the painting appears to be dated in shorthand 1974. It reminds me more than a little of the paintings of Fairfield Porter, who was also working in this mode and largely with this palette in the late 60s. This is a watercolor on paper framed, but not under glass. the painting is remarkably well-preserved. The fabric portion of the frame could use a little cleaning on the base strip, otherwise very well-preserved. So much to love here, the way the landscape is distilled to a series of splashy, brushy color island counterpointed against the more rectilinear components of the homes or (more likely) barns in the composition. Wonderful shadows on the lonely road running down along these barns. it's clearly autumn with the trees denuded of leaves and autumn colors at the end of the road. it feels like New England to me, but it could be, say, Pennsylvania. you can still see the artist's pencilings used in creating the composition, so this allows us some insight into the artistic process. Frame measures 15 in by 19 in. If you wish to purchase the watercolor painting, but have me not include the frame, I can take the shipping price down quite a bit to under ten dollars. That would, of course, only be after the purchase of the item. But I mentioned that in case you would like the painting, but don't care for the frame.
