Anders Aldrin: Salinas Valley,1963 Oil on Board P1191

P1191-93

Astonishingly, Anders Aldrin was rigorously and joyously a plein-air painter all his life. Exuberant and free brushwork such as his is not characteristic of the type. Neither was he particularly attracted to the picturesque. Here he takes on the the great agricultural engine of the Salinas Valley: it's not pretty, but in his hands it is ...

Anders Aldrin Small Boy 1932 Oil On Canvas P1184

P1184-38

We are so fortunate to have been granted access to so much of Anders Aldren's work. And the more we see of his work, the more compelling an artist he becomes. This portrait of a child is at once so direct and honest and yet wonderfully off-beat and sophisticated in its treatment. The very simplicity is deceptive. ...

Robert F Boyle (1909-2010) France 1944-45 Oil on Canvas Board P1183

P1183-33

This must have been painted during Robert Boyle's WWII stint in the Signal Corps. A sombre and insightful document of war-torn Europe. Hauntingly evocative and absolutely honest. The industrial suburb of a northern French city (Metz?) laid out under a winter sky. The walls display that eternal and ubiquitous French notice "Défense d'afficher" (Post No Bills). On his ...

Stunning portrait of a society beauty. Well, I made that up. About who she is. The sitter remains unknown in spite of her superb white coat which is really pretty haute in its cut.
