This is a stunning, classic plein air style seascape painting (24" by 30", 29 1/2" by 33 1/2" as framed) signed at lower left by California master artist HENRY LEOPOLD RICHTER (1870-1960). A possible original title, "SURF", is written on the stretcher. The handling of color, motion, and especially the balance of sunlight and shadow is quite impressive. Having viewed a number of other works by the artist online, this one really seems to stand out as a plein air beauty. It needs a cleaning, inpainting of small losses as seen at lower left, and a reline to address the patterns of large cracks as seen in the images. A more classic plein air style frame, in gold or silver would also greatly enhance the work. Richter was born in Austria and was in Chicago by 1887. While there he studied at the Art Institute under E.A. Burbank; by 1904 his work was being exhibited there. By 1920 Richter was in Long Beach, California, and not long thereafter he was attracted to the Laguna Beach art colony. Richter painted until nearly the end of his life.
