Allen Tucker
The Yellow Shawl

1909

$77,603.13

About

Unframed dimensions specified. Framed: 29 x 25 inches (73.7 x 63.5 cm) This figurative painting of a woman wearing an ebullient yellow shawl over her white dress, surrounded in a garden by beautiful flowers and flora, evidences why Allen Tucker was often called “the American Van Gogh.” His closest friend, critic Forbes Watson, described him as “brilliantly communicative, passionately in love with art in all its forms, with an ear for music, an eye for painting … genial and provocative in talk.” (Goley, in The Vibrant Landscape, 1997). The connection to the contemporary Van Gogh is partly thanks to Tucker’s imaginative application of colour. Here various shades of lilac are the focal point for the palette which creates a softness in the shadow rather than anything strong and heavy like black or brown. The yellow of this woman’s shawl is brought vividly to life by this contrasting of colours; it positively sings, and anchors the painting – hence Tucker’s choice for its name. Signed and dated (lower right) Provenance: The Milch Galleries, New York; Private Collection, New York
