A very nicely executed and clean work by noted artist Dean D. Newton (D. D. Newton, early to mid 20th century American, CA artist). This is an original oil painting on cardboard panel housed in a period frame that is a beauty itself. Newton was one of many independent artists hammering out a living in early century American by producing rapidly created works, often of the same scene with minor variations and different sizes. These paintings are sometimes referred to a "boiling pot" paintings referring to artists selling their works inexpensively in order to buy food for the boiling pot. They may also referred to as speed paintings, tramp art, hobo art, flash art, quick draw paintings, or tourist art to name a few. These artists tended to travel about selling their wares at various venues throughout the United States. Today many of these artists are being re-examined by collectors, especially the group known as the Florida Highwaymen (Dean Newton is not related to the Florida Highwaymen). Dean Newton worked primarily in California toward the end of his career.
This work is an exceptional example by the artist rendered with bold striking colors. You will not be disappointed.
