"Laundry Day," Brilliant Ptg. of Rural North Carolina Life During World War II

$9,500

About

Fresh as a crisp fall day, this painting of a woman taking down laundry at the base of a hill dominated by her home above is a reassuring depiction of wholesome rural life in 1941, perhaps in North Carolina, on the eve of America's entry into the Second World War. The colors of this landscape are brilliantly lit by the sun and the vivid blue sky is lined with scudding cirrus clouds. The painter was Warren Wheelock, best known for his highly-recognizable, abstract sculptures in bronze and wood. He also painted on occasion, bringing the same clarity of vision and mastery of the medium to his art. (Dimensions include frame.)
