About

Signed lower right, 'H. Dearth' for Henry Golden Dearth (American, 1864-1918) and dated 1892. Displayed in the original and period, carved gilt-wood frame. Framed dimensions: 22.5 H x 1.75 D x 36 W inches. Scion of a distinguished military family, Henry Golden Dearth first studied in New York with the academic painter, Horace Johnson. In 1884, he moved to Paris where he spent four years furthering his studies at the L'Ecole des Beaux Arts and, subsequently, in the atelier of Aime Morot. In 1887, he returned to New York where he opened his first American studio and was soon invited to become a member of the Society of American Artists. In 1888, he began to exhibit regularly at the National Academy of Design to which he was elected full Academician in 1906. In 1889, he exhibited for the first time with the more progressive Society of American Artists and, in 1893, was awarded the prestigious Webb prize for the best work by an American artist under the age of 40. 1902, Dearth moved his studio to 18 E. 40th Street in New York and began to spend his summers in Normandy, the region that had first drawn him to landscape painting. For many years, he maintained both house and studio at Montreuil-sur-Mer, in the Pas-de-Calais, where he worked for several months during each season. Over the course of a distinguished career, Dearth exhibited internationally with success and was the recipient of numerous prizes, medals and juried awards including a bronze medal at the Exposition Universal in Paris (1900) and silver medals at two Pan-American Expositions, in Buffalo (1901) and Buenos Aires (1907). Dearth's works are held in private and public collections world-wide including the permanent collections of the Detroit Institute of Arts (In the Gloaming), the National Gallery of Art, Washington. DC (Flecks of Foam), the Smithsonian American Art Museum (An Old Church at Montreuil) and New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art (Boulogne, Cornelia), among others. Henry Golden Dearth is well-listed in all art reference works including Benezit, Thieme Becker and Who Was Who in American Art which provides a signature sample. We are pleased to offer an exceptional work from Dearth's Barbizon period, painted when the artist was twenty-eight years old.
