Adirondack Paintings by Levi Wells Prentice

$16,000per set

About

Pair of landscape paintings by Levi Wells Prentice (1851-1935). Views of Whiteface Mountain and Blue Mountain Lake. Oil on panel. One of several art works we are selling from a living estate. Prentice was born in Lewis County, New York in the Adirondack Mountains, he earned a reputation for painting still life’s in landscape, although he began his career painting only the landscape. His still life’s were of two types, either arrangements placed in the landscape or close-ups of fruit growing on trees or falling out of baskets. He was raised on a farm from where he painted the mountain landscape of Lewis County and also painted in the vicinity of Buffalo and Syracuse. In 1883, he moved to Brooklyn, New York, where he worked as a carpenter, frame- maker, and art teacher and also began painting still life’s objects, something that by 1894, he focused on exclusively, especially highly polished and well defined apples. He left Brooklyn in 1903, and from that time, little is known except that his obituary was in the Philadelphia newspapers in 1935. In 1993, the skilful 'illusionism' of Levi Wells Prentice was celebrated in a retrospective exhibition at the Adirondack Museum in New York. His works continue to receive a high degree of appreciation by collectors today. His works are represented in many museums including the New York State Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Montclair Art Museum, Philbrook Museum of Art and Yale University Art Gallery.
