Martha Walter
Gathering, North Africa

circa 1935

$4,250

About the Item

Walter devoted her long and successful career to painting life as she saw it with overtones of Impressionism and Modernism. Preferring to paint plein air, her subjects were often unscripted gatherings of people and work or rest. Traveling through North Africa through the 1930s she captured the denizens of the markets and bazaars of Tunis, Tripoli, and Algiers. In our Gathering, North Africa, a fresh and immediate observance of a group of men at leisure enjoying a mid-day meal, Walter captures an ordinary moment with empathy and immediacy. This is mounted on top of a flesh toned archival quality mat board with an Art Nouveau carved gold leaf frame made by Steve Motyka. Martha Walter is one of America's most important and prolific early to mid twentieth century artists.
