Large Oil on Canvas Painting of a Florida Everglades River, Tropical Landscape, in the Manner of the Highwaymen (1/2)
Large-scale original oil on canvas portraying a lush tropical Florida hammock / marshland forest scene at sunset that is quite idyllic and dreamy. Executed in a very proficient academic style in the manner of the Florida Highwaymen movement.
The sunset painting is peaceful and portrays tall palm trees & oaks with a river running through the centre of the scene to a more open area similar to the Everglades. Spanish moss hangs lanquidly from the trees, and a pair of solitary white cranes or egrets look on. Primary colours are green, brown, cream, peach, with touches of white.
Presented in a fine ebonized frame with a gilt beaded border.
