The Sun Flower Portrait English Anthony Green, Oil on Canvas, Realized in 1974


Green prefers a realistic style underpinned by a strong narrative. Thoose elements are undeniably present in this work, depicting the face of a man with piercing blue eyes and a chestnut beard. Behind the figure, Green has painted a field with rows of vegetation that appear amorphously abstracted in the distance as well as a farmhouse. The man's facial expression is ambiguous- simultaneously appearing amused, stoic, and serious. The figure's countenance as well as the references to the our nation's rich agricultural traditions summon Grant Wood's celebrated painting "American Pastoral." In the middle ground, the artist has rendered several prominent and incandescent sunflowers bobbing in the sun. This painting is exuberant, unpretentious and classically American, with a cheerful palate sure to brighten any room. Custom gallery style frame. Excellent condition. Acquired from the estate of Maxine Pines. American, Circa 1974 English Anthony Green (1939). The sunflower portrait, 1974. Oil on canvas. Signed to frame, back of painting. 30"L X 30"W
