Levi Wells Prentice
Adirondack Scene

$15,000

About

Signed lower right. Levi Wells Prentice was born in the Adirondack Mountains of New York in 1851. This self-taught artist began painting landscapes of the area in the 1870's, when his family moved to Syracuse. Early in his career, Prentice also painted portraiture. In the late 1880's, Prentice moved to Brooklyn. It is believed that it was at this point, when he was no longer surrounded by mountain views that he began to paint still lifes. His earliest example of a painting in this genre is inscribed 1892. Although Prentice was known for his still lifes, he was remembered as a landscape painter skilled in depicting the glorious lake and mountain beauty of Adirondacks. In addition to painting, he designed his own frames, brushes and palettes, and was a talented furniture maker as well. Newman Galleries employed Prentice as a framemaker. In 1993, the Adirondack Museum at Blue Moutnain Lake, New York mounted a comprehensive exhibition of Prentice's works. Credit: askart.
