This is a relatively earlier (1976 or before) work of the noted Bermudian artist ALFRED BIRDSEY (1912-1996). Birdsey was a familiar figure in Bermuda for decades, a prolific artist, the works of whom traveled with tourists when they returned from holidays. This would account for the wide distribution of his distinctive work. Today his daughter continues the family tradition, with similar looking paintings being sold to visitors. Birdsey worked in gouache or possibly oil or acrylic on paper. Some works are more detailed than others, some with little color, but all capture the feeling of the unique island landscape of Bermuda. This example (18" by 22" inside the mat, 26" by 30" framed) is in excellent condition and is ready for display. It is apparently unsigned, but there is absolutely no doubt as to the identity of the artist and I guarantee this to be Birdsey's work. The subject matter seems to be a compilation, an agglomeration, of familiar island themes: palms, sail boats, water, even, apparently, the famous miniature Somerset Bridge in the western part of the isle. Compare with two other works by Birdsey in my shop. There is an old framer's date on the reverse from 1976 so therefore this would date to no later than that year. This might be shipped in a tube for savings on shipping.
