Excellent original condition. The painting and frame have been professionally cleaned. Just in from a CT River Valley estate. Biography from Mystic Museum of ART: A member of Mystic’s early art colony and a colleague of Charles H. Davis and Henry Ward Ranger, George Victor Grinnell was born into one of Mystic’s old shipbuilding families—giving him the distinction of being a Mystic native in the group of artists drawn to this area from cities like Boston and New York. Like these transplants, however, Grinnell was captivated by the local scenic environment, favorably suited to a naturalistic painting style. Collectively, their art became a celebration of nature and light. In addition to his painting prowess, Grinnell studied music in New York City, where he became a distinguished violinist. He subsequently returned to this area and taught music at Connecticut College while studying art with George Albert Thompson, whose work is also included in this exhibition. Both men were members of the Mystic Art Association in its infancy. Grinnell exhibited his work locally as well as at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C., the National Academy of Design in New York, and at the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts in Hartford.

Oil painting Country House by Maurice Sievan 1953
Item# 10822    $900
Oil painting Country House by Maurice Sievan 1953

Vintage expressionist style oil painting on artist board titled "Country House" by Maurice Sievan 1953. Wonderful original estate condition. The painting measures 9 x 12 inches and the frame measures 18 x 15 inches. Signed lower right, with notations on reverse. Bio from ASKART.com: Maurice Sievan (1898-1981). In 1940 painter Maurice Sievan and his wife, Lee Culik Sievan (1907-1990), an emerging photographer, moved from a Manhattan apartment into a new single-family home located in Flushing, Queens. The transition introduced Sievan to a pictorial theme that would preoccupy him for more than a decade: the uncelebrated landscapes of this outlying residential borough of New York City, typified by tree-lined streets, low-rise housing, nondescript shopping areas, and ubiquitous automobile traffic. These moody and curiously depopulated pictures were the outcome of sketches and occasional photographs recorded by the couple from a battered Chevrolet that Sievan had improvised as a mobile studio. "Suburbia #5", an unspecified Flushing streetscape dating from the mid-1940s, bears out the reputation - albeit unsought - that Sievan would acquire as the "poet laureate of suburbia". Sievan's Expressionist landscapes represented only one chapter in a long career marked by diverse stylistic adventures. Arriving in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, from the Ukraine in 1906, Sievan became a U.S. citizen in 1913, the same year he left school for an apprentice job with a local lithographer. He subsequently took courses at the National Academy of Design, studying under the realist painter Leon Kroll.
