Large, early charcoal drawing of a nineteenth century house in a leafy landscape, signed at lower right corner by listed American artist HIRAM HAROLD GREEN (1865-1930). 25" by 18 1/2" inside the mat, 34 1/4" by 27" framed. Green was born in upstate New York and died in Buffalo. A painter, illustrator and etcher, he became known around the Buffalo area for his birds eye views of Niagara Falls. Green worked for the US government during World War I, creating patriotic posters, and early in the century he created maps and worked on commission for the Santa Fe Railroad and Southern Pacific Railroad. Among works for the Santa Fe were "The Apache Trail" and "The Grand Canyon". Green studied at the Art Students League in New York under Henry Siddons Mowbray, Kenyon Cox, and Frederic Bridgman. This drawing shows his skill as an artist. It is in generally good condition, with a small dark brown discolored area smaller than the footprint of a pencil eraser, at center left near the portico. Considering the size of the glass sheet, this would best be shipped without the glass.
