Courtland Livingston Butler (1871-1952), American
"Calm Evening" undated
oil on board, 8 in. x 10 in.
(framed dimensions: 9.75 in. x 11.75 in.)
signed lower left: "Courtland Butler"

A nice example of this artist's work, depicting a wharf scene, most likely Gloucester, Mass. The early evening view is deftly executed, the sky quickly laid in with broad strokes of a bristle brush in gray tones, the distant shore in a subdued gray-blue, and the water in the foreground in hues of turquoise and emerald green with siennas and umbers for the wharf and central vessel. The painting has a dry, matte surface and appears unvarnished.

Courtland Butler was born in 1871 in Columbus, Ohio. He supported his family at first as a dentist and then an architect, living in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Pittsburgh and finally Hartford, Connecticut, having turned to painting full time by the early 1930s. By 1945 he and his wife Rose were living in Coral Gables, Florida, where he died in 1952.

Condition:
The painting is in excellent condition. The paint surface is clean, dry and undisturbed, no craquelure. The painting is inscribed on the reverse: "No. F14 CALM EVENING" and is housed in a newer, quality gold finish frame.
