Anders Aldrin Griffith Park Oil On Canvas 1943 P1188 SOLD

The way it was. Not too different from the way it is today, really, and yet, how new it was then! And that makes all the difference. A gorgeous landscape, that rescued piece of the wild and natural. One senses the astonishing value of the gift of this park. One is under that long-ago sky.

Los Angeles has been fortunate in the few painters who took it seriously as a subject, and Anders Aldrin is pre-eminent among them. This makes the painting a double-treasure, a superb work of art and a true document of our past. 18 x 22
