Oil on canvas painting of a copse of trees in full autumn color, titled in pencil on stretcher and placard "Red Oaks", the painting itself 16" by 20", signed at lower left by the noted American artist ALFRED HEBER HUTTY (1877-1954). Hutty was born in Michigan and as a youth lived in Kansas City and St. Louis, where he attended art school. In 1907 he moved to Woodstock, New York, where, along with George Bellows, he founded the Woodstock art colony, with which he was associated until the end of his life. In 1919 he went to Charleston, South Carolina in search of a milder winter climate. Hutty went on to become closely associated with the Charleston Renaissance in South Carolina, as a prolific etcher and painter. His renderings of scenes of genre with a background of downtown historic Charleston and the surrounding Low Country are today highly sought after, bringing large sums at auction. This work is likely a northern landscape perhaps in the vicinity of Woodstock, where he maintained a studio throughout his life. The painting and frame are in excellent condition. The canvas has been relined. There is stable craquelure, primarily in the sky. An easy to live with, calming landscape by a master artist.
