An accomplished watercolor of a spooky old Victorian house on a city block, signed at lower left by artist JOHN W. ATTERBURY and dated there 1944. The work measures 14" by 20" (24" by 29 1/2" in old stained oak wood frame). Titled in pencil "Yellow Windows" at lower center, the artist has created a work with very American qualities, and reminiscent of Edward Hopper's strangely empty and lonely structures, or perhaps those of Charles Burchfield. In this case some figures hurry by the venerable old building, and light does emanate from inside, thus the title. Atterbury was painting in the Rochester New York area. Few works have appeared on the market evidently; one from 1955, with a Rochester Memorial Art Gallery exhibition history, sold at an upstate New York auction. Atterbury seems to have been an illustrator in the 1940's through at least the mid 1950's and an internet search reveals he was in some legal proceedings as late as 1958, but a detailed biography including birth/death dates seems elusive at this time.
