George Herbert
GEORGE H. MCCORD (1848-1909), Christmas, 1873. Oil on card, 6 x 5 1/8 inches. Signed and dated 1873, lower right.

The exhibition will highlight works by a diverse group of artists. “Christmas” by George Herbert McCord (1848-1909) – a perfect response to what the wintry holiday season calls for will be complemented by his painting of a lake that will transport you through its serene landscape at sunset. James Perry Wilson’s (1889-1976) Impressionist painting “Field of Wildflowers”  and “View of a Path Through a Glade at Dusk” painted by William Langson Lathrop (1859–1938) in 1889 will bring some of nature’s warmth while Wilder Darling’s (1855-1933) “Wood Gathering” is ideal for admirers of Dutch-inspired scenes reminiscent of past scenes of pastoral childhood. Paintbox Treasures additionally highlights a moody landscape painting by Joseph Foxcroft Cole (1837-1892) who was Winslow Homer’s great friend. In fact, the exhibition sale offers several gem-like examples of landscape paintings by the Hudson River School.

FRITZ BACHMEYR (b. 1944), Snow Scene in Brooklyn, NY. Oil on board, 10 x 20 inches. Signed and inscribed with location, lower left.

The exhibition also includes works by influential women artists including a portrait and landscape painting, “Miss Fidelia Bridges at Miss Brown’s, Canaan,” 1902 by Anna Mary Richards Brewster (1870—1952), a beautiful autumnal landscape painting by Catherine Newhall (1840-1917), and on of Josephine Walters’ (1837-1883) characteristic detailed studies of a natural scene.


Whether it is with exaltation of winter in New York or a quiet scene of a moment enwrapped in the American Landscape, Paintbox Treasures highlights works exceptional quality and priced enticingly.
