Incredibly Beautiful oil painting by Santa Fe artist John Stoumbis -titled "The Matchless ~ At Leadville" ~ A Breathtaking view of the majestic Rocky Mountains in Colorado... Incredibly vivid, bold colors of the blue sky, the empowering mountains beneath, and an enchanting log cabin at the foot of the mountains... Signed by the artist STOUMBIS lower left.
On the back there is an original biography of the artist, which reads:
John Stoumbis was born in Minot, North Dakota. After World War II he began his studies in art at the Hill and Canyon School in Santa Fe, New Mexico, under well known artists such as John Sloan, Will Schuster, Randall Davy, Louis Ewing, Warren Wheelock, and Cyrus Baldridge. He has lived in the southwest for many years and continued his studies in Fine Arts at The University of New Mexico and New Mexico State University where he earned his bachelors and Masters of Fine Arts degrees. .. His themes in painting emphasize the colorful Southwest regions and the nostalgia of Nature.
This painting is oil on masonite board. Dating to circa 1950, it is housed in it's original carved wood frame. Excellent condition.
In frame measures 21 1/4" tall, 171/4" across. Painting itself 16" tall, 12" across.
This painting is truly a beautiful and rare work of art. I have found online prints or postcards after artworks of John Stoumbis, but it is truly rare to find an original oil painting by John Stoumbis!
