About the Item

Still life "Wine with Orange" by Claude (Charles Claude) Buck (1890-1974). Signed lower left. Artist's notes and color scheme on verso. Displayed in rustic giltwood frame. Image, 14"L x 12"W. Claude Buck was a obsessive detail oriented painter, his signature can be found in multiple locations on a painting due to the many reworks of the image. Also, he was determined to get it just right and within each painting there can be found many over painting and removing and re-painting of areas. Painter Claude Buck was born in New York City on July 3, 1890. He began his artistic studies at the National Academy of Design and was taught by artists including Emile Carlsen, George deForest Brush, Francis Jones, and Kenyon Cox. Later he traveled to Munich for a period of study. A leading member of the avant-garde Symbolism* artists movement in Chicago, Claude Buck moved there from his birth place of New York City in 1919. He was known for his "fantastic, sometimes disturbing images with allegorical and literary themes" (Kennedy 97) drawn from writings of Edgar Allen Poe, operas by Richard Wagner, classical mythology and "New Testament" writings from the Bible. Buck taught drawing and painting at the Chicago Academy of Fine Art from 1921 to 1926, and at the Art Institute, where he took over classes of George Bellows. In New York City before coming to Chicago, Buck had a reputation as a radical artist. He took his first art training from his father, William R. Buck, from the time he was ages three to fourteen, and then until he was twenty-two, he studied at the National Academy of Design* where he was nicknamed "Kid Hassam" because his painting reminded viewers of that of Claude Hassam. Buck worked as a scene painter in the theatre and at the Willet Stained Glass company, and in 1914 began portrait commissions to earn money. In New York, he founded a group named the Introspectives, which reflected his own problems with melancholy during that period. Members, holding their first exhibition at the Whitney Studio in 1917, were artists who expressed their personal feelings and experiences and included Raymond Jonson and Emil Armin. In this phase of his career, Buck was focused on Old World styles of Leonardo da Vinci, Ralph Blakelock and Albert Pinkham Ryder. In 1929, the Arts Council of New York voted him one of the top one-hundred painters in the United States. Buck spent the last 10 years of his life in Santa Cruz, California, he was a member of the Carmel Art Association*, the Santa Cruz Art League* that he served as President in 1953,and the Santa Barbara Art Association.
