A fine landscape with a cowboy on horseback riding the ridge with powerful clouds behind him by American artist Eric Sloane (1905-1985). Sloane was born Everard Jean Hinrichs in New York City and took an early interest in art, spending many boyhood hours with neighbor and noted font inventor Frederic Goudy. From Goudy, he learned to hand paint letters and signs. He established several aviation clients from Roosevelt Field, Long Island, painting the identifying marks on their planes. From these connections, he learned to fly and developed his love for clouds and sky from this newfound passion. One of his early clients, Amelia Earhardt, purchased his first cloud painting, and Sloane is said to be the finest cloud painter of his generation. His largest cloud painting graces the entire wall of the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC. Sloane is also known as being the foremost authority on early American rural architecture and early American tools, with many books published on each subject. Oil on masonite, signed lower left, titled on verso “Lone Summer Rider,” inscribed “Fenn Gallery, Santa Fe” on verso and frame, and framed in a complimenting barn board frame. Dimensions: 20” h x 30” w, actual; 27 1/2” h x 37 1/2” w, framed.
