Barn in Winter Field

Watercolor by American artist Lowell Ellsworth Smith. Signed in the lower right and dated 1964. Painting measures 10 7/8 x 23 inches on heavy weight watercolor paper. Lowell Ellsworth Smith was born in Canton, Ohio in 1924. He attended Miami University in Ohio (BFA) and graduated from Famous Artists Schools in Westport, Connecticut. This painting truly captures the luminosity of the winter sky, the long blue shadows, and the detail of the long grass in the half-melted field in the foreground.


A Sunlit Path
1837-1908, American

Oil on canvas, 20 x 14 inches in a 25 by 18 1/2 gold period frame. Because this has only a partial signature we are only able to attribute this work to Alfred Bricher. Upon cleaning of the painting, a partial signature was revealed in the lower left. The technique and composition also is very similar to many well known works by this artist. There is an area at the lower edge of this painting which has been inpainted but not the signature...The frame appears to be the original one. We feel the setting of this work might be from Lake George N.Y.
