Antique French American Impressionist Oil Painting Plein Air Country Chickens Ny
An amazing oil on canvas painting by American Artist. Measuring approximately 16 x 20 inches. Although the canvas was shortened vertically, I suspect the presentation was composed personally by the artist based on the signature placement. This appears to be created en plein air and most likely New York state, although France is not out of the question. The light white paint may have been intended. I have not seen a landscape oil by this artist and therefore consider it rare and early piece by this artist. The subject matter and composition are fantastic. Thanks for looking at this fine American painting. She began earning awards from 1936, when she received the Hallgarten Prize at the National Academy of Design.
