WILLARD PAGE (1885-1958) Southwestern art Colorado landscape painting of flaming aspen in the fall
This is one of the highly popular paintings, almost always featuring favorite landscapes of the southwestern states, by the American artist WILLARD PAGE (1885-1958). This particular work, 11" by 8 1/2" (13 1/2" by 11" as framed), is signed with his distinctive "WP" monogram at lower left, and the typically seen rubber stamp of his Boulder, Colorado studio appears on the backing. The subject is one that Page turned to again and again, as it was likely a popular seller. Page was born in Kansas in the mid 1880's. He and his wife moved to Colorado after taking a liking to the Rockies. He based himself in Boulder, painting generally miniatures, or at least small paintings, of the scenery with which he was so familiar and so fond. The paintings were excellent sellers, as they are now found scattered around the nation, having come home to all points of the compass with the tourists who visited the West and Southwest from about the 1920's through 1950 or so. Later in life, due to health concerns, he and his wife spent more time further south, in the milder climes of Tucson and Prescott, Arizona. The works painted in those years of the 1930's and 1940's feature adobes, cacti, and other symbols of the Great Southwest. This example is in excellent condition.
