About the Item

Stowe Vermont Village Sleigh Ride - Mid Century Winter Figurative Landscape A bright, crisp morning and a sleigh ride through new snow in Stowe, Vermont is this charming winter landscape by Walter T. Sacks (American, 1901-1961), c.1940's. Sacks uses a vivid color palette and keen attention to detail to bring this exuberant and festive snowy scene to life. Signed lower left "W.T. Sacks". Presented in a wood frame. Image size: 30"H x 25"L. Framed size: 33"H x 28"W x 3"D. Walter Thomas Sacks was a painter known for his landscapes, cityscapes, village scenes, marine scenes & harbor views, winterscapes & mountainscapes in oils, watercolor and gouache. Walter painted throughout Western New York, Rockport, MA, and Quebec Canada, and won several prizes & awards during his career. He was a member of Rochester Artist Club (1st Prize 1938 & Prize 1939), Rochester, NY, Fine Arts League of Buffalo (Gold Medal & George Inness Prize), Buffalo, NY, and the Salmagundi Club, NYC. He also supported the Society for Sanity in Art, as well as the Rationalists, who rejected ultra-modern expressionist and surrealist movements of the late 1930's. These self-declared 'liberal-conservative' artists of Buffalo and Rochester, NY, exhibited work "based on sound knowledge of fundamentals with individual expression." The Rationalists began exhibiting in 1939 but their combined efforts were short-lived and the group disbanded in the late 1940's. The Rochester division evolved into the Genesee Artists Group.
