Oil on board painting, 8" by 10" plus a 5/8" wide frame, featuring a small creek in a snowy landscape after a storm has passed, titled on the reverse in pencil "TOMORROW FAIR AND COLDER", signed there "VICTOR C ANDERSON/WHITE PLAINS, NY", and signed again at lower left corner. The artist is most closely associated with the New York City area, though he spent some time in Texas in the early 1930's. Anderson was an artist of diverse talents. He was an illustrator, plein air painter, easel painter, and creator of fresco and mosaic. Educated at Pratt Institute, and a pupil of Birge Harrison, he exhibited at the Grand Central Galleries, and was a member of the Salmagundi Club and Society of Illustrators. Walt Reed recognized Anderson in his comprehensive book, "The Illustrator in America". Anderson's paintings have sold at auction to about $10,000. CONDITION: This painting is a small gem, though the accumulation of years of grime should be removed in a professional cleaning. The blues and purplish hue of the white snow would truly "pop". See the upper left corner for an indication of how much dirt has accumulated. Also, though a vintage frame accompanies the painting, a wider, more elaborate gold or silver frame would be most complementary. .
