Oil on canvasboard painting of a late autumn landscape, 18" by 24", unframed, signed at lower right by the listed American artist and illustrator CHARLES E. HOOVER (1897-1969). This is a masterful palette knife work, probably painted relatively quickly. The yellow of the flaming late autumn trees contrasts with the blues and whites to create a fine composition. Hoover was closely associated with Washington, D.C., having been born, and having died, there. He was an illustrator, and a member of the Society of Washington artists. Notably, he studied with the important Pennsylvania impressionist, Hugh Breckenridge. The painting has been affixed to a pegboard, which over time has warped and become concave. The painting should be removed from this board and that way it could be flattened and framed.
