Listed Artist Alexander Bower Impressionistic Winter Landscape
A very pretty c1920-30s Oil Painting. The painting is an Impressionistic Landscape of a Winter scene and is signed "Alexander Bower". Bower (1875-1952) was born in Manhattan, NY, he studied at the well-known Ecole de la Grand Chaumiere, the Academie Julien in Paris in 1906, the Philadelphia Museum School of Industrial Art and at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts with Thomas Anshutz. He was an associate member of the National Academy of Design, a member of the Salmagundi Club, the American Watercolor Society, the Philadelphia Watercolor Club, and the Boston Society of Watercolor Painters. His works were shown throughout Europe at the Salon des Independants in Paris, in Brussels, Boreaux, Cannes, throughout Switzerland and England. His United States exhibits included the Carnegie Institute, the National Academy of Design, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art. Bower held the position of Director of the School of Fine and Applied Arts, in Portland, Maine where I believe this fine painting was painted. The Oil Painting is executed on canvas board and is in the original frame, it has a second study in oils on the back of the canvas board. Overall dimensions are 13 5/8" x 11 7/8 including the frame, the painting itself is 10" x 8" when measured from the back. The Impressionistic Winter Landscape is in very good overall condition. It could use a light cleaning although it displays beautifully just as it is. This is one of three from the same estate, please see my store, Neatcurios for the other two.
