For your consideration, a fine American School painting by the listed artist Alfred H. Bennett (American, b.1891). This fine circa 1949 landscape features a vital color palette in shades of mauve, browns, blues, greens, and off-whites; the work has a plein air aesthetic in its use of color and tonality.
The oil on linen work measures 24” x 20”, framed 27” x 23”, and is in excellent vintage condition with no tears, and one small area of pigment loss and one area of minor wear (see photo). The painting is signed “Alfred H. Bennett” “1948” and the frame is identified with “Gimbels, we will not be undersold”, on frame verso. Bennett often used structures like bridges or the design of a glass roof as defining structure in his compositions. Primarily a manufacturer of men's trousers, he studied at the University of Pittsburgh, and with artist Christian J. Walter. Bennett was a member of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh, and won the Carnegie Institute Prize in 1933 for the best group of three or more paintings, and in 1938 he received the third honor and Prize for his trompe l'oeil painting of a violin and piece of sheet music on a wooden door.
