Allen Fontaine, who died in 1962 at the age of 101, was a Maryland-born artist who moved to New York, where he painted watercolor landscapes and seascapes that were sold by Macy's department store. He was a prolific artist, whose works are quite affordable today. This example, acquired in Connecticut, is an exceptional panoramic work, measuring 11" by 43" (15" by 47" in old framing). The peaceful autumn scene of flaming trees bordering a still creek, a lone bird reflected in the waters, is beautifully painted. Considering that it has traveled without glass, the work is in excellent condition, with only a few minor flaws. Fontaine is an underrated artist. You will love this work, which deserves a special wall.
