$40,000

About

"Ripening Wheat" by Wharton Esherick is a 30" x 25" oil on canvas American impressionist, Pennsylvania landscape painting. It is framed in a new 22K reproduction frame, signed "Wharton Harris Esherick" in the lower left, and it was painted in 1921 - 1924. This landscape is a very rare find for Wharton Esherick, as he only painted in the early years of his career. Provenance: Mariam Phillips Collection. The Rose and Nathan Rubinson Collection. Private Collection, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. McKee Gallery exhibition in 1921. Wharton Esherick (American, Pennsylvania, 1887 - 1970) is most widely known for his non traditional furniture design, sculptures, wood block prints, and paintings. He started as a student at The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the influence of his teachers, Daniel Garber and Hugh Breckenridge, is beautifully articulated in this dream-like, impressionist landscape, painted with a delicate aura of haze in subtle pastel tones of greens, purple, and blues. Carving decorative frames for his own paintings in 1920, Esherick was guided to the art of woodcut printing and sculpture. He has been called “The Dean of American Craftsmen” and was considered a driving force in the Arts & Crafts movement. His studio near Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, is a work of art all in itself. For over 40 years he designed and created furniture in his unique style, and in 1993 The Wharton Esherick Studio was declared a national historic landmark. There are very few known landscape paintings of his that have been discovered and this painting is one of the best to have been found to date. Additional shipping options are available upon request.
