We are proud to offer this early 20th century abstract illuminated sunset oil painting by New York City artist, Albert Lorey Groll (1866-1952). Although the artist preferred figure painting, he returned from Europe to York City in 1895 to become exclusively a landscape painter. The reason for the change in his choice of subjects was because he was unable to afford to pay models for figure painting. He painted for a short period of time along the Atlantic coast before he went West. While he is best known for desert paintings, his early paintings along the Atlantic Coast are much more scarce and often command higher auction prices than his desert landscape paintings. This impressionist illuminated oil painting is highly prized due to the popular subject and use of techniques that demonstrate his genius as a tonalist.

This amazing piece was painted in the Atlantic Coast region which dates it to the period shortly following 1895. The oil painting on canvas measures 13 1/2” x 17 1/2” and with the frame, 16” x 23”. The setting is an enclosed body of water along the coast where freshwater from rivers and streams meets and mixes with salt water from the ocean. These estuaries are protected from the full force of ocean waves, winds and storms. Tranquility may exist in this kind of setting. Groll’s painting depicts this kind of tranquility, featuring sailboats on the water at sunset. The darkly lit water and surrounding land is blended into an illuminated multi-layered sky that is reflected on the water. This combined Groll’s technique of mixing crayon with oil to impart a somewhat textured effect to the surface. The painting on board shows no damage or restoration. The unique frame, original to the painting, is wood that has been painted black with carved decorative gilded scrolls at the corners. The inner and outer borders of the frame are also gilded with no loss. The frame is in excellent condition with no faults found. The painting is signed in the lower left corner. This painting is offered for a very favorable price, far below market value, but offers are always considered. Shipping by USPS Standard Registered Mail is all inclusive with your purchase.
