1948. Watercolor, 15” x 21-1⁄2”. Framed in No. 2.1 — 3″, in quartersawn white oak (Medieval Oak stain).
For the vernacular subject matter and painting style of this piece, the frame could hardly be too simple. The native beauty of the oak, the angle and the step at the sight edge resonate with the angularity and confident, strong line work. That’s all that’s needed; that’s all we did.
