A Woodland Spring
1857-1927, American

This is a richly painted, atmospheric woodland scene by the New England artist Joseph H. Greenwood. Oil on board, 6 x 8 inches, 1898, signed and dated on the lower right. Greenwood started out as a factory worker and then a teacher and eventually became Worcester's most noted landscape painter who preferred to paint the natural beauty of rural New England's four seasons. He was influenced by his contemporaries, George Inness and Willard Metcalf and studied in the Boston area with R. Swain Gifford and John Appleton Brown.

Print

Old English Horu - Tibiteau Cherry
1900-1971, British

This beautiful color etching by Elyse Ashe Lord measures 11 1/8 x 9 3/4 inches and is pencil signed and numbered. French matted and framed. Elyse Lord lived her entire life in Britain and although her work shows a strong Asian influence, she never actually traveled the continent. Her inspiration instead came from Chinese literature, artwork and her own imagination. Her unique style uses fine drypoint lines and delicate, yet vibrant colors to create images that that have a serene, almost dreamlike quality.
