  • Pablo's View (Medellin): 1970's Colombian Landscape Painting on Canvas
    By Bill Sullivan
    Located in Hudson, NY
    1970's landscape painting on canvas of a view in Medellin, Colombia Calming atmospheric yellow, blue, and green palette Made in 1979 by Bill Sullivan oil on canvas, unframed 24 x 40 inches signed, lower right This modern landscape painting was made by Hudson Valley based artist, Bill Sullivan, in 1979. Interested in the style of the Hudson River School painters such as Frederic Church and Thomas Cole, Sullivan sought to adapt traditional landscapes with a modern lens. During the 1970's and 80's, Sullivan traveled in the footsteps of Frederic Church, capturing the same scenes the late artist made famous 100 years prior. Here Sullivan paints a picturesque scene overlooking a mountain range in Medellin, Colombia. Titled 'Pablo's View', Sullivan perhaps envisioned Pablo Escobar...

  • Men at Work #5 (Framed Figurative Oil Painting of Construction Worker in Red)
    By Allan Skriloff
    Located in Hudson, NY
    Realistic figurative oil painting on canvas of a lone man working on an industrial construction site with a rust red backdrop Palette is composed of grey gunmetal, deep rust red, black, mulberry, and golden yellow Men at Work #5, painted by Allan Skriloff, ca. 1980's 42 x 54 x 2.5 inches with a custom steel frame Excellent condition, ready to hang as is Skriloff shines a glorified light on the muscles of men in hard hats that sweat and contort aboard an oil rig, elevating blue worker brawniness to an other-worldly status. This figurative painting highlights the beauty found in the every day. Scenes one might overlook are given careful attention by the artist's trained eye. A lone worker is captured behind a foreground of metal bars against a backdrop of rest red. Shadow's cast by the man's hard hat allude to his anonymity. The piece is complemented with a custom thin steel floater frame, is in excellent condition, and ready to hang as is. About "Men at Work:" While on a trip to Australia, I was in Alice Spring. Where I took an excursion to Palm Valley. My tour guide mentioned there was gas fields in a remote section of the Outback. I said I'd love to go there and he replied, "no worries, Mate - we'll get you there.” He happened to be a pilot and we flew in his prop plane...

  • Six O'Clock
    Located in Los Angeles, CA
    Six O-Clock, c. 1942, oil on canvas, 30 x 20 inches, signed and titled several times verso of frame and stretcher (perhaps by another hand), marked “Rehn” several times on frame (for the Frank K. M. Rehn Galleries in New York City, who represented Craig at the time); Exhibited: 1) 18th Biennial Exhibition of Contemporary American Oil Paintings from March 21 to May 2, 1943 at The Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. #87, original price $450 (per catalog) (exhibition label verso), 2) Craig’s one-man show at the Frank K. M. Rehn Galleries, New York City, from October 26 to November 14, 1942, #10 (original price listed as $350); and 3) Exhibition of thirty paintings sponsored by the Harrisburg Art Association at the State Museum of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg in March, 1944 (concerning this exhibit, Penelope Redd of The Evening News (Harrisburg, Pennsylvania) wrote: “Other paintings that have overtones of superrealism inherent in the subjects include Tom Craig’s California nocturne, ‘Six O’Clock,’ two figures moving through the twilight . . . .” March 6, 1944, p. 13); another label verso from The Museum of Art of Toledo (Ohio): original frame: Provenance includes George Stern Gallery, Los Angeles, CA About the Painting Long before Chris Burden’s iconic installation outside of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Urban Light, another artist, Tom Craig, made Southern California streetlights the subject of one of his early 1940s paintings. Consisting of dozens of recycled streetlights from the 1920s and 1930s forming a classical colonnade at the museum’s entrance, Burden’s Urban Light has become a symbol of Los Angeles. For Burden, the streetlights represent what constitutes an advanced society, something “safe after dark and beautiful to behold.” It seems that Craig is playing on the same theme in Six O-Clock. Although we see two hunched figures trudging along the sidewalk at the end of a long day, the real stars of this painting are the streetlights which brighten the twilight and silhouette another iconic symbol of Los Angeles, the palm trees in the distance. Mountains in the background and the distant view of a suburban neighborhood join the streetlights and palm trees as classic subject matter for a California Scene painting, but Craig gives us a twist by depicting the scene not as a sun-drenched natural expanse. Rather, Craig uses thin layers of oil paint, mimicking the watercolor technique for which he is most famous, to show us the twinkling beauty of manmade light and the safety it affords. Although Southern California is a land of natural wonders, the interventions of humanity are already everywhere in Los Angeles and as one critic noted, the resulting painting has an air of “superrealism.” About the Artist Thomas Theodore Craig was a well-known fixture in the Southern California art scene. He was born in Upland California. Craig graduated with a degree in botany from Pomona College and studied painting at Pamona and the Chouinard Art School with Stanton MacDonald-Wright and Barse Miller among others. He became close friends with fellow artist Milford Zornes...
