This is a nice mixed media watercolor and ink painting by the well listed artist Frederick Dwight Kirsch. This is a colorful oak tree in the fall. Signed twice and ink stamped on the bottom, D Kirsch 1960. On the verso is the Title and artist monogrammed, Oak in Autumn Watercolor and Ink DK 1960. This was exhibited at the Memorial Union Galleries in Iowa State College AMES. A sticker attached to the back is from the exhibition. I see no scratches, holes or restorations. The original paper has its tattered edges from manufacture which will be easily covered if framed. The painting on heavy artist paper measures 15 inches wide and 21-3/4 inches tall. This will be sent flat in a box. Dwight Kirsch was born in Pawnee County, Nebraska. He was a painter and art museum administrator in Iowa and Nebraska. Played an important role in both of those states for the acquisition of what was then regarded as modern art. His style has been classified as an Regionalist, and was known for still life, landscape, and figure paintings. Dwight graduated from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln in 1919, and then studied for three years in NYC with Robert Henri and other well-known artists of the time. He became professor of art at the University of Nebraska in 1924 and was Chairman from 1931 through 1947. One of his innovations was introducing photography into the Universities curriculum.
