1920's

$2,500

About

"Riding" by Pennsylvania furniture designer, painter, and sculptor Wharton Esherick, is a 7.25" x 5" etching of two horsemen riding through a dense forest. It is matted and framed behind glass, signed "Wharton Harris Esherick" in the lower right, and titled in the lower left. Provenance: Private collection, New Hope, Pennsylvania. 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.
