"Fresh New World," 1944 Masterpiece Depicting Early Suburban Life in America

US$12,500

About

A true masterpiece of genre painting, with its depiction of idyllic World War II-era suburban life filled with children playing and adults attending to their homes and chores, this piece was created by Allan Jones in 1944. It is a stunningly beautiful spring day, and the view is looking through an open window with a blackbird sitting on the sill, into the backyards of a half dozen tidy brick and wood houses. The homeowners are attending to their Victory Gardens and their freshly-washed clothes, and the yards are already bursting with life. Jones, an accomplished illustrator and painter, captures Mid-Century life brilliantly and sympathetically, a fine art equivalent to one of the finely directed domestic dramas produced by Hollywood in the 1940s. The painting is executed in tempera on board and maintains its original frame.
