Original oil painting by a well known American artist Harry St. John Dix (1907-1968). Harry Dix was born in Seattle, moved to New York where he studied at the Art Student's League, became a combat artist during WWII, and exhibited widely within the United States. His works are in such collections as the Frick Museum and the Smithsonian.
This is a strange work showing an ornate house on a calm city street. It is delicately and meticulously drawn, a detailed work that is imbued with a kind of lonely stillness, a woman with a blank face on an empty street is putting a letter into a mailbox. Unique outsider piece! Signed in lower left corner "Harry Dix".
