Still Life Water Color Country Table Scene Maine Artist Alfred Russell Fuller
A nice opportunity to acquire beautiful art work in watercolor by this renowned American listed artist “Alfred Russell Fuller” (1899-1980).The work is excellent in bright glorious contrasting colors. I should state here that I have a collection of 10 of these paintings -I am selling them as EACH, so you may buy one or two -or maybe buy them all if you like! These are very special, all you need to do is put them in a fantastic frame. This is one of the things that I love about this area that I live in here, at small estate sales I always find some of the best little paintings ,I am always in awe of the artistic ability & natural talent of these special local country folk.
Each measures approx 10” x 7 ˝” overall and the painting themselves are approx 5 ˝” x 7 7/8” – some slightly larger some slightly smaller. Seven of the paintings are signed Alfred Fuller and three are attributed to him. Six of the paintings are on painter board (cardboard thick stock) and 4 are on a thinner white paper stock. Quite a few of them have writing on the back in pen – some with the title, artist and description of the painting along with a small address label for the former owner. The ones that are entitled are as follows: Lunch at Old Tree Tavern (having numerous animals and birds); spring, summer, fall and winter or The Four Seasons; Table Decoration; Redwing Courtship or Redwing Family; Mid Summer Bouquet; Sunny Village; and Popular Catkins & Chickadee. I can’t say enough about the work here – the use of shadow, color, composition and detail is exquisite. They are all in very fine condition – ready to frame. The following is a brief biography on the artist. Alfred Fuller was a painter, teacher, and lithographer. He was much associated with Monhegan Island in Maine where he taught during the summers. He was born in Deerfield, Massachusetts and attended Amherst College. In the 1930s, he moved to La Jolla, California and was a student of Roi Clarkson Colman. Reportedly he also taught lithography classes at the University of Arizona. In the mid 1940s, he settled in Maine, living at Port Clyde and Monhegan Island, where he died in 1980. He had numerous exhibits including - American Watercolor Society-Exhibit; Grand Central Art Galleries; Metropolitan Museum NY; National Academy of Design-Exhibited; Pennsylvania Academy-Exhibited; Salmagundi Club-Exhibited; and Washington (DC) Watercolor Club.
