Original Antique Watercolor / Gouache Painting by George H. Flavelle American Listed Artist, (1868)

Original Antique Watercolor/Gouache Painting by Listed Artist George H. Flavelle (American, born 1868)
Wonderful bucolic painting by George H. Flavelle. Flavelle who specialised in watercolours depicting traditional landscapes. This particular painting of a tranquil lake its' way set in a wooded landscape illustrates Flavelle's academic mastery of the media. Subtle light and atmospheric effects impart the painting with an idyllic primordial feeling. NOBODY paints like this anymore. A real masterpiece.

Additional reading:
George H. Flavelle (American, 1868-) painter primarily known for his watercolor paintings depicting landscapes, woodland interiors, seascapes, cottage scenes and Dutch scenes with windmills. Flavelle was born in Pennsylvania in 1868, and he initially took night classes at the Spring Garden School (where he won first prize), and later studied art at the Pennsylvania Watercolor School. Early on in his career, he worked for an art publishing house, and also attained great success as a glass and china decorator, but the limitations of those professions pushed him towards doing his own art.
