Anders Aldrin (1889-1970) Grove of Trees P1413

p1413-90

For Anders Aldrin the experience of a grove of trees, for experience is what he paints as much as appearance, is vibrant and exciting, deeply charged with immanence and mystery. Here we can see his kinship with the French Fauvists filtered through a distinctly Nordic sensibility. It's an extraordinary painting in every way. His is ...

p1396-91

This unsigned oil carries all the promise of California in its luscious depiction of plenty, at a time when the American settlers were arriving in their thousands from the East.

Health and wealth and happiness to follow, these were ...

Vernon Morse WWII Original Art for Propaganda Poster P1395

p1395-82

This is happy propaganda, so radiant and confident one can almost believe the war was won on attitude. Good, that is. In fact it was won by sheer superiority in resources and manufacturing and a huge war effort on the part of the civilian populations as well as the military. This now exists as a ...
