An impressionist watercolor painting of a brook in mid-winter somewhere in the Northeast, a red barn at the top of the composition. The work is signed in red at lower right corner by artist HOBART ALEXANDER WALKER (1869-1955), and dated there 1939. The artist created a fine sense of depth, with the perspective of the babbling brook and the shadows on the deep snow banks at left. Though listed, there is not a lot of information available on Walker. He was born in Brooklyn in 1869 and died in Maplewood, New Jersey in 1955. We do know that he was a member of the American Watercolor Society, as well as the Society of Independent Artists, and he exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago and Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. The watercolor is in excellent condition. A better framing situation, including a mat, would be an excellent investment which would bring out the qualities present.
