About the Item

An important American Impressionist oil painting, Walter Bowman Russell (1871-1963), Coral Gables Florida, 1927. Walter Bowman Russell was a very talented & charismatic figure, referred to as a "Creative Genius"; a talented painter, sculptor, author, illustrator & founder of the University of Science & Philosophy and in the early part of the 20th century as a builder who created over $30 Million worth of cooperative apartments. When Russell died in 1963 the celebrated journalist Walter Cronkite call him the "Leonardo da Vinci of our time". Russell's artistic career started when he attended Massachusetts Art School and the Académie Julian in Paris, in 1900 his allegorical painting "The Might of Ages" represented the United States at the Turin International Exhinbition in Italy and won several awards. This very beautiful colorful Impressionisitic painting depicts a Spanish style villa in Coral Gables, Miami, Florida, the stucco building with a pantile roof and striped yellow window awnings, with a palm tree and cactus plant and other tropical plants to the foreground. The painting is signed lower left, to the verso is an original label written by the artist's hand " A Spanish Patio [ In the residence of Mrs Hewett Brown Coral Gables Fla ] 1927 Walter Russell".

The Hewett Brown family were part of the Miami social circuit.

  • California Impressionist Oil on Canvas Painting Seascape Rocks at Malibu 1930's
    By Daphne Huntington
    Located in Portland, OR
    Oil Painting of Malibu by California Impressionist Daphne Huntington (1910-2012). The painting depicting the Pacific ocean waves crashing over the rocks at Malibu. The painting is in very good condition. Sisters Venetia Epler and Daphne Huntington were California artists whose work is represented in several permanent collections: the San Bernadino County Museum, the De Saisset Gallery, the Santa Clara Museum, the Mary Pickford Collection and the Richard Nixon Library. Venetia and Daphne have both been included in Who’s Who in American Art, Who’s Who in California and Who’s Who in the West. Both are Fellows of the American Artists Professional League, and the American Institute of Fine Arts. Daphne was a member of the National League of American Pen Women, Artists of the Southwest, the San Gabriel Fine Arts Association and the California Fine Arts Club, for which she was Vice President in 1967. Venetia and Daphne studied painting at Slades in London, stained glass at the London School of Arts and Crafts, and the École de Louvre in Paris. The sisters’ most extraordinary achievements are two huge oil on canvas pieces that were re-created in tesserae by Italian master mosaicists. Both mammoth mosaics were titled “The Life of Christ.” The most recent “Life of Christ’ was dedicated in 1993 and is the façade of the mausoleum at Woodlawn Memorial Park in Orlando, Florida. The first, and completely different “Life of Christ” mural was completed in 1972, and to this day serves as the Western Hemisphere's largest religious mosaic...
