Early 20th C. Abstract Landscape, Oil on Canvasboard, Albert Lorey Groll

Presented for sale is an early 20th century abstract western landscape painted by New York City artist, Albert Lorey Groll (1866-1952.) The darkly lit landscape is blended into a multi-layered sky and combines Groll's technique of mixing crayon with oil to impart a scuffed textural effect to the surface.

The painting is signed in the lower left hand corner, as well as titled "Evening Sunset" with the artist's name on a frame plaque. It is set into a beautiful carved giltwood frame, original to the piece. The painting is in excellent condition; the frame has had a small amount of restoration.

Alber Lorey Groll was born in New York City and spent his early years as an art student in Munich, Germany at the Royal Academy studying under Ludwig Loeftz. He eventually returned home and headed West with Professor Stuart Culin, a well-known ethnologist. He became fascinated with Indian culture and began to paint the dessert landscapes of New Mexico and Arizona winning a gold medal at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in 1906 for his desert scene, Arizona. His paintings combined a sense of realism but just as often leaned toward abstraction. His paintings can be found in The Fine Art Museum of San Francisco, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Smithsonian Institution as well as many private collections.
