Evelyn Rumsey Lord (American; 1877-1963). Summer Near the Beach; Oil on Canvas, ca. 1915-1920.

Artist Evelyn Rumsey was born in Buffalo into a storied New York family with ties to many of America's important families of the day. She studied at the Albright Art School in Buffalo and furthered he career in Provincetown, Ogunquit with Charles Woodbury and New York with Robert Henri. She summered in Maine and Cape Cod.

This brightly rendered impressionist painting depicts a perfect summer day at what is likely Cape Cod. The road climbs a sight hill past a large tree shading a house or cottage underneath. The artist was known to paint on Cape Cod during summers there and this is a great candidate for that location. One might expect that the beach, or a view to water, is just over the hill and in the near distance.

The oil on canvas is signed Evelyn Rumsey lower left, likely predating her marriage to Reverend Walter Russell Lord. It measures 18' x 22" and is housed in a quality American Impressionist gold frame with overall dimensions 25 1/2" x 29". The painting is in very good bright condition with very faint stretcher marks showing and some equally faint craquelure. At a distance, these minor issues do not detract from the beauty of the painting or scene.
