Arthur Meltzer
Milkweed in Winter

$22,000

About

Framed dimensions: 27 x 31 in. Signed lower left: Arthur Meltzer Arthur Meltzer was born and educated in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he studied at the Minneapolis School of Fine Arts with Robert Koehler. He apprenticed with a stained glass company for six years, then enlisted in the army at the outbreak of World War I. After his discharge, Meltzer attended the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts under the tutelage of Joseph Pearson and Daniel Garber, and was awarded the Cresson traveling scholarship in 1921. In 1924 Meltzer joined the faculty of the Philadelphia School of Design for Women (now Moore College of Art and Design). There he met his future wife, Paulette van Roekens, also an artist and instructor. Milkweed in Winter shows a close-up view of drying milkweed seed pods against a backdrop of fresh snow. The artist contrasts a gray sky and dark blue water in the far background with the clean white snow, overall bringing emphasis to the milkweed. The small farmhouses in the background add to the tranquility of the scene. The painting evokes a nostalgic sense of calm on a chilly winter day, and Meltzer’s use of a limited palette enhances the peacefulness after a snowfall. Arthur Meltzer was a member of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts Fellowship, Philadelphia Museum of Art; Woodmere Art Association, and the Artists Equity Association. His work was exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia; Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts; National Academy of Design, New York; Art Institute of Chicago; Woodmere Art Gallery, Pennsylvania; Minnesota State Fair; Philadelphia Sketch Club; Corcoran Gallery biennials, Washington, D. C., Philadelphia Art Club; and the New Haven Paint and Clay Club, Connecticut. His work is included in the permanent collections of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Moore College of Art and Design, and the Philadelphia Art Alliance, Philadelphia.
