Pencil on paper drawing of a southern-style house with large tree and foreground dog, dated 1967 lower right, 5" by 6 3/4", 13" by 15" framed, by the well listed Louisiana artist ROLLAND HARVE GOLDEN (1931-). The dog resembles an ancient breed of dog, such as would be seen in a museum of Egyptian sculptural antiquities--perhaps, the pet of a pharaoh. The juxtaposition of the dog in front of the typical and familiar southern architecture is in keeping with Golden's self-described "borderline surrealism". He is known for his Louisiana landscapes, often executed in watercolor, and often featuring roads, with which he has a fascination. Golden studied with the important southern regionalist John McCready. For many years he has been a familiar name among the regionalist artists of the South. Works by Golden appear frequently at auctions of fine southern art. This is a powerful regionalist work worthy of the finest collection of Southern American art. The condition is excellent, with just normal age browning around the edges from mat contact. See also a print by the artist in my shop, acquired at the same local estate.
