About

This scene of a geometrically comprised modern couple ice yachting with the unexpected help of a pierrot deckhand was presumably created as a cover painting for Collier's magazine. One of many sporting scenes by the prolific early 1900s Golden Age of illustration American artist Orson Lowell, this has his signature bold and colorful style. The colorful precision recalls the work of Herbert Paus, as does the cutting edge innovation seen in the boat. Painting is in a very fine state of conservation,and signed lower left. Verso bears the text "Painted by Orson Lowell - USA," back stretcher bar has pencil writing that is very hard to read but appears to say "Cover for Collier's", we have not yet been able to locate the exact usage. Nicely framed in a period wide profile antique gold frame. Signed LL. Sight Size 26 1/2" x 36" Framed 33" x 42"
