William P. Silva Footbridge-Gloucester

William Posey Silva(1859-1948 was a prolific and wide ranging impressionist. He painted for many years in Chattanooga, Tenn. and Savannah, Georgia, where he is best known for his "Garden of Dreams" oils of wispy moss on the trees, and a soft impressionist style that at one point put him at the top of the art world. In 1913 he moved to Carmel, California, and got involved in the art colony there. He won many prizes for his art over the years, and continues to be an important early impressionist. This particular painting is somewhat of a rarity, depicting a scene in Gloucester, Mass. It was probably painted on a trip to that part of the country he rarely went to. It came out of his estate when he passed away in 1948, hence the label by his son on the back. It is in excellent condition , 12x15 in size with a nice period frame, and ready to hang.
